Default Rule of thumb/Hollow Core

Im wanting to make my own wind-on leaders for my reel and I'm wanting to know the basics Rule of Thumb on picking the right size of Hollow Core to thread the mono?
Also the right size of Needles for 200-300 lbs test.

I use plain old dacron. Never seen a problem. Use leader wire instead of a needle.

But either way works.
