Recalculating it is more like 168 strands of 26awg magnet wire for ~70A, 4awg equivilant, litz or twisted. Twisting copper wire is actually how you straighten it, so without the braiding it should actually be a bit narrower. unless you use a untwisted braid. Just hoping to avoid more sourcing headaches than necessary.
