I would simply try to get close. Close is good enough
It's fairly wide; not sumo or anything, which I hear isn't very good for raw Squatters. Not sure how to describe it....it's wider than an Oly stance and outside of shoulder width. I can hit depth without too much trouble.

I was curious more than anything. It sounds close to mine right now.

I have noticed that many people THINK that they go much deeper than they actually do. They talk about doing deep squats but if they are videotaped they are in fact doing half-squat... This happened to me, I thought that I went easily below parallel, but I was in fact above parallel... Now I go just below parallel (Im using a box), but I had to take about 20% from my work set weights off to be able to do it. But I think this is better in a long run than consistently doing half squats.

For sure. What I was wondering about is using half Squats AFTER your deeper working sets; just to overload the legs a bit.

You are flexible then, considering your height. How wide your stance is?
