Default Simple Q: Extract->2 Row conversion rate

I have an upcoming recipe that might push the limits of my MLT...How much extract should I use to replace anywhere from 5-7 pounds of 2 row?

6 pounds of 2-Row (all grain) comes out to 4.5 pounds of light DME

It's generally a 1/.75/.6 ratio between grain/LME/DME so 6 lbs of grain would be 4.5 lbs of LME or 3.6 lbs of DME.
