I think you'll find that your router's CPU will be happier if you just dump
the 1918 networks to the bit bucket on your border routers with a static
route via interface Null0:

   ip route 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 null0
   ip route 127.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 null0
   etc.

Considering resource utilization on the router, it is cheaper to do a
routing table look-up than it is to do ACLs.  Also, when you're doing
outbound filtering on the router, you have to do a routing table lookup
first before you can do outbound filtering.  Save a step and just do the
routing table lookup.
