Fed sentences usually serve 85%. But could be less if they do the RDAP program

You can plan on 85% of it and with extra programs maybe helping on appeals. I don't know what his guidelines are so there may be stipulations in his sentencing specific to him. I'm sure there are lots of people on here with way more info than I have. Good luck!!

They will earn 470 days of regular "good time" on a 10 year sentence (with a small chance that the bop will change that to 540 days in the future). RDAP "extra" good time is a maximum of one additional year off, but not every inmate who completes RDAP is eligible. His unit team can tell him the answer.
