I don't have a ton of experience with 20 rep squats. I have made perhaps 3 runs with them. When my squat max was 405 I started with 225 and built up. When my max was 500 I was using around 275 for 20 reps. I had much more in the tank but simply had training ADD and moved on before trying for 315x20. Even 275x20 was gut busting.

I would say if you're one rep max is 275 you should probably start with 135 and build up.
