    1/0 or 0 gauge wire (bare) is about .32 pounds per foot. You will have about 6.5 pounds of copper. A losing proposition the way I see it.

    yes i figured that with bb only being 2.00$/lb. i was wondering tho if someone gives you 300$ in insulated romex different gauges how many pounds of bare wire would u have? for arguments sake lets say its 14 gauge solid wire.
