I don't have access to the CADO stage 1 hits. We've collected 2.7M hits of our own, and they will all have stage 2 performed by both packages.

Keep 'em coming!

Ilya, I suspect a lot of the difference boils down to the more effective root sieve developed by Shi Bai for the CADO stage 2. From what I've seen it consistently produces better alpha scores without sacrificing as much polynomial size as Msieve needs.
