Are you sure that's forwarding table size, not routing table size?

There are lots of platforms that will have large RIB but a lot smaller 


"HP 6600 Router Series"

"Routing table size 1000000 entries (IPv4), 300000 entries (IPv6)
Forwarding table size 1000000 entries (IPv4), 100000 entries (IPv6)"

I don't know if there is a typo somewhere, but it shows the difference 
between RIB and FIB.
