Normal procedure is to pull 2 degrees timing for every 50 HP. That could depend somewhat on your set-up and fuel you are using. If its race gas and the engine is built for it then you can play with those things a little bit.
The main thing is dont get overly aggresive as David stated. Step it up when it looks like its good with the smaller shot.
