Thought I might add a little.
1. Aspect ratio = inside diameter of loop / wire diameter
2. Inside diameter = wire diameter X aspect ratio
Take the wire diameter and inside loop diameter you are using now and figure the aspect ratio using # 1.
Use this aspect ratio and the wire diameter you would like to use to figure the new loop diameter using # 2.
