Default safe level of CO2 in bottles

What sort of carbonation can standard bottles (reused, regular weight bottles from beer I drink) take.
If I wanted to carbonate a beer with say...3.5 volumes, would they take it all right?
I've had bottles blow up before, but I've figured my system out better since then and really wasn't sure what the carbonation level was on that batch.
Thanks for advice.

I've seen "regular" 12 oz bottles are good to 4 here on the forums.
