My 200 amp service pedestal is 400 feet from my barn I installed 3” gray conduit with a pull box at 200feet my biggest draw will be my 220 volt 50 amp mig welder that I will use once or twice a year. My plan is to install a 100 amp sub panel in the barn. I have two questions that I’m not sure of. (1) what size wire should I use for a 100amp 220 sub panel (2) will I have a problem pulling the 400 feet of wire threw the pull box at 200 feet or should I buy the wire in 200 foot section and make the connection in the pull box at 200 foot any help in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
