You know, in Italy the same tanks rated for 2400 here as LP cylinders are pressured to a bar equivalent of 4000 psi in Italy.....

I hear the characters in Flori-duh regulary do 4000 psi in the same cylinders......

disclaimer-I am not an expert, so don't do this...

I think Beuchat markets the largest steel cylinder I have seen, I believe it is around 140 c.f. that I beleive is rated at that size at 3450 psi.
