Need to know what the load amperage is on the 100 amp panel. If interested, open discuss question page.

A #3 copper wire with an insulation rating of 75 or 90 degrees C is rated at 100 and 110 amps consecutively.

#8 is the size of wire to use for grounding a 100 Amp panel. Green is color used for grounding #8 is code.

Nec 310.16 #3 thhn

Assuming the voltage is 240 volts, the wire size for a 100 amp panel at the end of 400 feet and holding the voltage drop to 3 %, the wire will be 3/0 in size.

AWG #6 will work fine at 100 feet with only a 2% drop in voltage which is acceptable.

A #3 copper conductor with an insulation factor of 90 degrees C is rated at 115 amps. Even though the panel is rated at a higher amperage it is the main breaker that governs the wire size.
