Default recommended pitch range for tuning 6.5" steel snare?

Hello, is there a recommended pitch range for tuning a DW Collector's 6.5" Steel Snare Drum? In other words, are there recommended pitches to tune the batter and reso heads to? I assume head choice would affect the desired pitch, but I am wondering if there are any general "best practices" for this type and depth of snare drum.

(I have searched the forum for this topic, but haven't found this specific question addressed. Also, I've watched the Bob Gatzen and the DW tuning videos, but I believe they both were suggesting pitches for a 5.5" snare.)

Thanks.
