Depending on where you are legal limit means different things.

I have used RG303, RG304, RG174  all can be had at cut lengths from
various sellers.  

303 is small (0.170 ) no cold flow issues used within the specs, ~2 kw
power capable. Min. Bend Radius ~1 inch.

304 is larger(0.280) will handle ~4 kw no cold flow issues either. Min.
Bend Radius ~1.5 inch.

Various manufactures make it different ways some even with a abrasion
jacket etc.

So when you do decide on what cable, find out from that manufacturer the
data on that exact cable from them.
