I don't have very good statistical collection but here are some numbers 
I get from monitoring my spam levels over the last few days.

420: Messages hitting SURBL with total scores less than 8.5

486: Messages with total scores between 5.0-8.5

86: Messages hitting SURBL and scoring between 5.0-8.5

Not knowing exactly how you calculated your 85%, it is hard to compare 
my numbers.  In fact, I'm not sure that these numbers are in anyway 
useful but there they are just in case.
