Default Trimming Brisket for A Box

Getting ready to do a practice brisket and wanted to trim before smoking to fit evenly in a turn-in box. How wide would you suggest to trim since the brisket will shrink. My first thought was to trim raw to the full width of the box. I know they shrink but not really accurate on how much. I would appreciate any thoughts from the brethren on this. Thanks.
