I have an M4 myself and I would be supprised if you could put 400 yds on it. I have 200yds of 50lb Power Pro and have used it with a 375 sink tip that brought it to full. Also, I had the inner bearing burn up after about 5 albies in a 1/2 hour last year so if you are pursuing something that is going to run that distance I would be cautious. Bauer was very good about replacing it and the new bearing and drag did look like it had been updated.
