Default compression lug selection - finely stranded wire

I'm going to be building a battery bank and planning to use some 250 or 300MCM finely-stranded wire. I envisioned using one-hole plated-copper compression lugs but I'm coming up blank so far trying to find products advertised as listed for use with the fine stranding. I don't see any mention of it in the ILSCO or Burndy catalogs.

Was hoping to find something that can be properly crimped on Greenlee's rotating-die manual crimpers it is the "Greenlee K09-3GL K-Series".

Anyone know of a product line or have any thoughts?

Not sure of the qaunity you need but for quick purchase we use West Marine as they are close to me. I generally order large quanities from a battery vendor
I deal with.

Other wise we order Amazon is as good as any.
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
