Assuming you use the Konvas core and not the Kodak conversion, how much film (in feet) can you actually cram into a 60m Konvas mag and it still run out and back in without jamming?

Depend from thickness of film.

Do not need forget, the length of 60 m of roll calculate from thickness of old russian Svema film.

The user manual of Konvas cameras told, the maximum diameter of roll of film must be 111-112 mm.
The film must have emulsion inside.

Paul, I don't know if you'll just ignore my answer, but I'll attempt to help you anyway: 60m is just poorly-rounded metricized customary units. It'll fit 200 feet easily, and probably more like 210 with leader taken into account.

100-foot rolls of film are commonly refered to as "30 meters" even though it's actually 30.48. This is why film-lengths should be mandated in feet internationally, like aircraft altitudes. Lazy rounding can sink a ship!
