I have seen 30-50% savings on some networks when patch Tuesday hits. Its 
not achievable on a vanilla squid though and needs some code magic.

With general traffic the savings tend to be around the 10-20% mark. 
Unforunately much of the stuff you really want to cache like your 
YouTube vids is intentionally filled with cookies that make it 
un-cachable. This is done intentionally for copyright compliance and 
various other things.
