Dang! My error! Big friggin' OOPS!  
Substitute "FEET" for winds on that 2800 figure. Depending on the bobbin, the number of winds could range 2-3 times the actual footage. 5600 - 8400 winds sounds a lot more realistic than 2800.  
As a sanity check, #42 single build wire would need about 4500 feet to hit Rickenbacker's 7.4k mark.
