'Spool' is not a quantity per say, so you might want to consider defining 
that as a separate item, or an order link with a preset qty. That aside, 
you just need to change (or add) some columns to the pricing db:

sku     ...     q100    q400
item            #.##    #.##

...replace item and #.## with the appropriate data.  The ellipsis 
represents existing columns; you should be able to just tack yours on the 
end. Then modify your CommonAdjust string in catalog.cfg (I am working with 
the demo default here):

CommonAdjust   pricing:price_group,q5,q10,q100,q400: ;:wholesale ;$

Do a reconfig (known as 'Apply Changes' in the Admin area) and all should 
be well.  Note that your price for the 0-99 range will come from the 
products file (the 'list' price) unless you make entries for the wire in 
the other existing pricing db columns such as q10, q25, etc.
