Default Standard beer bottles hold how much pressure???

I am looking at bottling my Belgain Blonde and was wondering if regular 12 or 22 oz beer bottles will hold between 3 and 3.5 volumes of CO2. Thanks in advance for the info!

Most people I've seen say the max is 3 - 3.5 vols of co2. Though I'm pretty sure I've seen Kristen England say in posts on the NB forum that they will hold 4 vols.

I suppose it depends on the quality of the bottles. The last batch I actually bought were definitely thicker and heavier than the previous bottles I'd bought. I thought they felt a bit heavier so I actually weighed them and they were a few ounces heavier.

Orval bottles are insanely heavy for their size.
