Figuring Battery Capacity

Hi Guys, Need the battery experts to help me. I aquired 6 - 6v golf cart battries for a great price (free). They are NAPA brand. They measure 10 1/4 x 7 x 9 and the label states 115 mins. @ 75 amps. How many amp/hrs might I expect from these? They are brand new. Searching the archives and looking at various formulas I come up with 413.25 total amp/hrs - 215.63 usable @ 50%. 3 banks/2 batteries wired for 12 Volts. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
"Doc" Bob
