    unless you really need the return for something I would get some without it. The return acts as a crap trap and tends to increase corrosion. It does help the flange resist local buckling, but I would be surprised if you were working the section that hard. That chunk doesn't look like a stock size either (it's very thin), so you might need to get a piece of sheet bent to suit your needs, which may also be cheaper than buying a 6m length of rolled stuff.
