75% is really an ideal number to hit and anything in the low 80's is great. Once you start getting higher than that the potential to extract more undesirable characteristics becomes greater and not ideal.
Instead of chasing numbers it is much more beneficial to have a dialed in system that produces consistent results, even if that arrives at 60%, consistency is more important from batch to batch!
