Larry,
8331405*21 = 16662809 is also prime. Thus, the 100th prime occurs for n=45052 while in this respect the best among "old" candidates is k=1581823815 where the 100th prime occurs for n=38374. Very close! More such results can be found here.

100 primes
For the groups interest, the best +1 number to get to a hundred primes got there with n=3258 with k = 1108828374241*M(59), where M(59) is a certain multiple of small primes p up to 59, excluding those with order base 2 of less than p1. This is a Payam number, par excellence.
It may well be that the  series produced better, but I don't know for sure. In any case there are better numbers out there, although Phil Carmody thought that this was close to the ideal number at to that (i.e. 100 primes) range. For your interest, this number was checked up to n=100000 with "only" 140 primes, so we stopped checking it in earnest  ther are plenty with greater than that at that level, but software does not allow for fast checking of theses k, because k is rather large.

n=10000
PS A good count for primes at 10000, on the + side would be greater than 116. The candidate at that level was 2158430601663 *M(67), whose 116th prime is at n=9971

Primes for k=3803443215:

I'm at roughly n=188000 currently, planning to process to n=250,000, then decide whether to push the lowweight number beyond 1M or this number to higher powers. What's the current cutoff for top5000 entry? n=220,000? Curtis

The top5000 cutoff is just below n=189,000 now.

Primes for 15k=187466565 with n from 100000 to 150000
The range 100000150000 was sieved by me, gribozavr, and LLR'ed mostly by my friend yasya. So, please, give us both a credit for theese primes (write something like gribozavr and yasya):
Code:
187466565 107376 187466565 109098 187466565 111081 187466565 127062 187466565 130833 187466565 134459

Attached see primes for k=736320585 for 1<n<250000 (total of 100 primes incl. 2 Sophie Germain).
Continuing sieving and testing.

I have finished testing k=187466565 for n=1200k. I have found some more primes:
Code:
187466565 160453 187466565 165138 187466565 178879 187466565 187871 Can any of theese primes go into Top5000? The biggest one is 56564 digits long.
