One list has values between 0 and 4 (integers expressed as reals) and uses less than 500 bytes. Some reals are builtin to ROM (as are some exact integers), and are usually referenced in a list by their 2.5 byte address instead of the actual raw data (which consumes 10.5 bytes). In particular, all integer reals in the range 9..35 can be referenced this way. There's others, too, but that should give you some idea of where the size differences come from.
