So its the end of the season and im upgrading and switching around reels. I have some penn 320's and 330's that id like to spool up some #45 copper. Cant really find much info on copper capacity on these reels. I was thinking about 100' max on the 220's and 200' on the 330's but not sure. Whats the most each of these reels would hold?

If you are determined to use those reels I'd go with 30 lb copper to make room for as much of the backing you can get on.

I have the reels and the copper just sitting there. I still have a few 209's with 3-7 color that i use sometimes so this would have to be better than that. I would use them for erie too and have snap weights so even 50-150 would get used alot. Browns in the spring might be nice to have a few 50's. 100-150's would work for me most the year. Im just looking for ideas and im retiring all the lead core. Not necessarily trying to put on as much copper as i can. Just ballpark of backing and lenghts and thoughts on short cores to ponder over till i get to use the boat again.

I'd say your limited to 100-200' coppers. Google those specific reels capacities and then compare those to Saltsit or Tekota's. That will give you a better idea. For example, on a Saltist 50 I can get 150yds of 50lb braid and up to 300' of 45lb copper.
