Yes. I too have observed this. A few posts back, I had said that 81 was "low weight" compared to 82. My guess is that for some of the n's, some small prime(s) might be eliminating a lot of candidates. Conversely, some n's might be escaping these small primes.

Incidentally, these "heavy weight" n's all seem to be of the form 3x+1.
