My first 5 or so AG batches i added an extra pound of the base grain to help my efficiency while i got the hang of brewing and got more familiar with my equipment. Was consistantly in the 80% range. Now that i've stopped that and go with the recipe, i'm down in the low 70s with an occasional 80 in there.
Once you've gotten familiar with your equipment and the process your efficiency will raise IME.
