Billy,
You'll never be able to pull more than 1/2 the battery's reserve rating long enough to blow a fuse with that same rating. For instance, a battery with a reserve capactity if 100Ah should be fused your main fuse should be 50A, no matter the amount of current your amps can pull. It was weird when i heard it but it makes sense and it's never done me wrong.
