.13 to .62 is 'standard' B to B on a baritone guitar.
You can go a little lighter if you like ... 12 - 60 works fine.

*If you're using a standard electric guitar, you will have some intonation problems. Tuning all your strings that low, you really need a longer scale instrument.

Ken is right per usual smile.gif It might be time to trade in a guitar and get a Baritone scale instrument or switch to a 7 string instrument.
