Low 6V6GT Plate Voltage

Low 6V6GT Plate Voltage
I was just wondering what is to low for a 6V6GT plate voltage. On my salvaged parts 5E3 project I'm getting 330V to chassis ground, although idle current per tube seems to be around 11.5 - 12ma at idle. Is this ok or is it too inefficient? Thanks in advance.
