Not a problem. The thicker builds on these gauge wires don't look
to be a problem. The insulation values and low dissipation
factors make the tradeoff against lost inductance to be quite
attractive. When you have completed winding the coil you will of
course look for a premier coating to finish this coil off.
... If all else fails... Throw another megavolt across it!
