Boiloff looks low. I'd go at least 15% unless you're indoors.

I did this one a few weeks ago. Mashed-in with 3.5 gallons of water. After the 1 hr mash, I added 1.5 gallons of water at 180, stirrred and drained. I then added another 3.5 gallons, stirred, let sit for 10 min, drained. My pre-boil was about 6.8 gallons and I boiled off about a 1 gallon in a 10 gal Mega-Pot. 5 gallons exactly went into fermenter. I didn't dump the gunk at the bottom of the pot. Seemed to work out well for my first AG but my initial strike temp was a tad high (grain was 77, strike was 168, should have been 166). Good luck.

Hit and OG of 1.048.....3 points off.

So rather than telling my LHBS to adjust their crush, would telling them to run it threw twice help my efficiency?

I hit 1.048 as well on mine. I've decided to go ahead and get a barley crusher. My pre-crushed grain experience hasn't been that great.....

Mine just hit the 2 week mark in bottles. Time to stick one in the fridge for a taste test!

Most likely yes, but then you increase chances of a stuck sparge. I'd adjust for the efficiency you got instead.

You have to save a lot of grain to pay for the BC. I bought the BC more so I could save add'l $$ by buying 55# bags. I don't care if I don't get astronomical efficiency.

Everyone system is different so your evaporation, dead space lose and boil off will be unique to your system . You will need to do a few batches and determine your amounts as you learn. I have less than .15 gallons Equipment dead space lose, so you can see it is very variable
I use the same calculator that Ed still uses I believe

I missed this one last post
How is your water. If your ph is off you could lose that much, so it's hard to tell if your lose is due to crush or water. Check with others that get their grain crushed there and compare results.

I bought a Cheap($12.99) Corona type mill and have been getting between 79-83%, so think before you spend $150+ for 1-2% IMHO
