Shimano Deore brake adjustment

I think my brake levers have now got more travel on them compared to when my bike was new. If I grab the lever really hard I can get it to touch the bar (obviously not when riding as this would mean a wheel locking code brown moment!)

However after riding my mate's bike last weekend his did seem a lot more "direct". Am I right in saying I can adjust mine by twiddling that teeny allen screw inside the inner end of the moving part of the lever, that is presumably connected to the piston? If so, how much should I be turning? A couple of turns at a time? Half a turn?

I've checked the pads and I think they are OK, probably got more than half of them still left.
