Cable sizes are:
00 = .3648 is 283 amp
000 - .4096 is 328 amp

When electricity flows through a wire, it mostly flows on the surface of the wire, not through the middle. Which is why the welding cable is multi strand as well as giving it flexibility.
This is AWG standard info and for DC, but not welding cable specifically, which could carry even more. I think you will be fine with it.

The virtue is always a cover for the sin. That's the key to understanding the modern left. Whatever they're accusing you of doing, they are doing themselves but more enthusiastically. And that's definitely the story of Justin Trudeau. Tucker Carlson
