I've never run below mid 70's. My last batch was an 83. However, as I've said before I don't really go for mash efficiency. Grain is so cheap I'd rather go for brewday efficiency.
With that said I'm getting good efficiency. Possibly it is the good temp control, my pH management, my milling, and recirculation combined.
