Right now my raw squat 5RM is about 440. My projected squat max from that is around 518. So it appears many calculators are using around 85% of 1RM for a 5RM.

I think my max is around 515 to 520, so it appears at least for me this is spot on.

I think if I tried a 5x5 I might have to start around 405 to have a prayer of completing it. Maybe even around 385. I've ran an 8x2 with around 425 (ish).
