[QUOTE]You tested only k=3329 from n=3330000?
For a Nash weight that low you tested only 516 nvalues to find such prime. Lucky hit. [/QUOTE]I had testing going on for 6 different k's, so I tested more like 30004000 candidates overall, still very lucky find. I was also surprised to find a prime with the k that had the lowest weight of these 6 k's. 
273*2^20248101 is prime! (609531 decimal digits) Time : 1198.071 sec.

[URL]https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=131376[/URL] Nonessential fun facts: 1) k=195 is the highest Nash weight k in RSP k<300, with a weight of 4106, followed by k=45 at weight 3747. 2) The last prime for k=195 was for n=1983875, found in 2014 by Peter Benson 3) My first prime since Aug 2008 (152521 digits)  i took a ca. 11 year hiatus from prime searching 4) First prime since I restarted prime searching in summer/autumn 2019, was really waiting for this 5) My first megaprime
