    Question 8mm vs. 10mm ose bullet connectors with 8awg wire

    Does anyone know if 8 guage wire can be run with the 10mm OSE bullet connectors? I will be running a motor/esc combo which both run 8 AWG wire and could see as much as 300A draw. The 8mm are rated to 200 and 10mm up to 300 which makes me think 10 is what I should run but if 8mm can still likely handle that current I would probably just go with those. So any answers whether that wire could work with 10mm connectors and a grub screw would be greatly appreciated or any answers regarding the 8mm connectors being sufficient.

    Ummm, grub screw?? We normally solder the wire into the connector. Which does require a stout solder iron for 10mm connectors.

    FYI: I would go with the 10’s over the 8’s for 300 amps

    I guess what I meant by grub screw was just to fasten the wire before soldering. And I went with 10mm. Just hoping they work fine with 8 AWG
