"cold crank amps" is a battery manufacturer term that has nothing to do with the actual amp hour output of a battery, other than they generally go up more or less together.

Keep in mind that the more you discharge a battery, the fewer charge, discharge cycles you have. It is a bad idea to run a battery down. Deep cycle batteries are a little better in this regard, but they will still have longer life if you do not discharge them close to their capacity.
