I've checked some exponents and all seems OK except k=5.
Code:
51323 1M/t17_b2_k5.npg
48098 2M/t17_b2_k5.npg
45757 3M/t17_b2_k5.npg
34694 4M/t17_b2_k5.npg
34752 5M/t17_b2_k5.npg
34774 6M/t17_b2_k5.npg
Why so much difference between 1M3M and 4M6M ranges? Usually difference no more than 57%. For example, for k=33:
Code:
45919 1M/t17_b2_k33.npg
46129 2M/t17_b2_k33.npg
46271 3M/t17_b2_k33.npg
44182 4M/t17_b2_k33.npg
43896 5M/t17_b2_k33.npg
43877 6M/t17_b2_k33.npg
