Default amp draw question

When you break in brush's the proper voltage should be 2-3 volts. There is a amp reading, what range should the amp draw be? Do you want high amps or low? Would I be wrong to say if the motor is pulling low amps at 3 volts it would be better or less friction in the bushings. What if you run the voltage up to 7 volts, do you want high amp reading or low?
Thanks for any reply's

No load amp draw really means nothing......I never pay attention to it unless its very high, which is typically caused by something not being right with the motor.

On the average monster, you will see from 5 amps to 10 amps at 3 volts....just depends.

But like I said, it really doesn't mean much....
