for a total of 320 watts, the STEADY STATE expected current through the relay would be (320/12) = 27A. However for about 0.2 seconds, the inrush current to heat the lighting element can be 10 times greater. while one would not size the relay for 270A, the 50A realy can disipate that burst of heat better than a 30A.
