If I have 1000 g of fresh, but completely manicured nuggs, what’s the formula for dry weight?

Hey team, I recently moved and I have some space challenges so I cannot hang my latest harvest of Double Dank Jack Nuggs. I have a good buddy that trims my nuggs, he is obsessed. He is unable to do a half ass trim job. 
So I requested he do his finest work on a couple DWC clones I cut down this am. It took him 8.5 hours to do the whole batch, even though it’s fresh. A LOT more work for him, but I have to dry these nuggs on a drying rack so they need to be trimmed first. 

Anyway, I really have no idea what kind of ratio of fresh nugg is water, so I’m wondering if anyone has a formula? Like 80% water, 75%, any ideas?

I usually go with the 25% rule. Dry equal about 25% of wet weight.

This was an unbelievably accurate formula. Ended up with exactly 25%. Not 24, not 26, 25%!
