For what it's worth, 6 amps through one of those capacitors
would correspond to about 2890 volts at 300 kHz.  With the
rated DC voltage I'd suspect they'd work fine in TC service.

I'd think you'd want at least 5, and preferably 10 of those
in parallel to get a decent primary capacitance.  If they
are indeed suitable that sounds like an acceptable price.
