Default AHS Crush

For those of you that buy/have bought grain from AHS crushed, what efficiencies have you been getting? Nothing against AHS, I just want to compare.

piss poor, (check my thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/one-more-poor-efficiency-thread-112918/ )

But I don't know if the crush is at fault yet.

Been averaging around 70-75% with their crush. Have hit in the 80s a few times when I did a decoction.

I got about 79% on my first all-grain from AHS. I bought a barley crusher since then so that was my only crushed all-grain kit from them, but I was pleased, and almost didn't buy the BC because I thought the crush was so good.

I was averaging in the mid to upper 70's. With the BC I now get 80's never had a problem with AHS's crushed grains
