If the HL is on the cam then it is not a 65% it is usually 80% or more. So you're holding a lot less weight at full draw. Because of the nature of some Cam and Limb combinations at that kind of let off you can't be specific on the percentages.

If it's a Martin bow then the HL stands for High Letoff, which is nominally 75%. You can get 65% mods for some of their cams and they are marked with 65% right on them.

As selil said, depending on cam configurations, draw length and other features the letoff won't be quite as stated. My HL's usually give me about 72%, a nice tradeoff of decent letoff, but a little more holding weight for better aiming.
