Something like 127.42.42.42 might be more reliable, because it does not depend on the LAN configuration, only on the local loopback settings.
It is in 127.0.0.0/8 but not in 127.0.0.0/32.
Tested OK here.


127.0.0.0/8 - This block is assigned for use as the Internet host
   loopback address.  A datagram sent by a higher-level protocol to an
   address anywhere within this block loops back inside the host.  This
   is ordinarily implemented using only 127.0.0.1/32 for loopback.  As
   described in [RFC1122], Section 3.2.1.3, addresses within the entire
   127.0.0.0/8 block do not legitimately appear on any network anywhere.
