The rule of thumb I've always used is to "put a smile on them". Always double check that the bit is resting in the center of his bars as well. If he has been handled roughly for a long time and you suspect "bit abuse" then a little tighter or looser should put the bit in a new place - just be sure it is not hitting teeth.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
