If you are pulling it with pipe or by itself with a regular blade you will want to keep your turns to a minimum to keep the stress off the wire. If you are using a chute blade you can pretty much do what ever because you are laying the wire instead of dragging it behind you.

I'll be laying with a chute blade as far as I know at this point.

Has anyone ever laid any high voltage wire? I was told by someone you cannot lay flat cable such as 12ga UF?

the jacket of UF wire can't withstand abrasion like the irrigation cable can - you could always try pulling/laying some conduit for high-voltage conductors
