What's considered a standard grout line width?

I've got 12x24 tiles for both shower wall and floor. I thought 1/8" was standard but seeing as how Home Depot only seems to sell the leveling caps in 1/16" I'm second guessing myself.

Can you reliably score and snap tile by hand?

My shower wall tiles are too long to fit into my snapper(21"). Is it reasonable to score and snap them by hand? Or are they too large for that? They are procelain.

Thanks!
