1" or 3/4"?

What size hole do the pros use to pass romex through a stud?
1" or 3/4" hole?
Obviously the bigger hole the more feeds...but...aside from the practical...is there a max number of romex that should be passed through 3/4" hole and the max feeds through a 1" hole from a Code standpoint?

5/8 for single runs, 3/4 for two cables. 24 inch long bit in a 1/2 inch drill. Drill every other member from the opposite side. Makes pulling go a little faster. Used to use a right angle driver but the 24 inch bit makes the job go faster.
