Not for very long with reissue 6V6's.
Most NOS RCA's can take that though. But 350-360V max is best.

Plate structure is larger than a 7868/7591, so these tubes run pretty cool when run at nominal ratings. I think I read somewhere that the stated dissipation is 14 watts, and that that is conservative.
I've also used the Electro Harmonix 6V6 in a few amps as well including a 50 watt Marshall top as an experiment. In that case they were running at about 400 volts with no problems at all.
