I would stick with 22awg, the average turn ratio is from 900 to 1200,  I
used about 1000 turns on my 8.5 x 24 and with 3 NST's in Parallel I have
pushed out 4 foot fairly thick streamers with a forced air static gap.
If you are burning out NST's make sure you have a relief spark gap, and use
some kind of protection filter.
Static spark gaps tend to be easier on NST's, according to a what I have
read, something to do with better synchronization.

My 5cents worth.
