alaska 140 stove temp vs stack temp

Anyone with a 140 what are your stove vs stack temps? With my stove at 370 inside temp (measured with temp probe above top door) stack inside temp is 200 (measured 12" from stove). Does this stack temp seem a little high? Draft is at .04

I don't have an Alaska 140, but 200 degrees seems fine for an interior stack temperature. My neighbor has a LL stoker stove, and his routinely runs a 200 degree stack temp. My EFM can get up to a 350-375 degree stack temp. when running hard.
