I'm not sure what the melt point of the standard Amsteel Blue is though.

Amsteel Blue is rated at 275*F melting point. The only possible time you could generate that much heat would be winching out. Even then it would take an extended amount of power out winch time. Automotive winches, especially large ones, just don't have fast enough line speed to friction heat the line unless what ever you sliding the line accross has traction such as rubber or soft plastic.
