When creating a policy to block a large range of IP addresses, it might be advantageous to explore the reason that so many exclusions are being made.
Creating a policy to block a country, rather than a ranges of IP address, might better suits your needs. For more details refer to How to I block IP addresses by country?
Blocking a country will block the entire country, no exceptions allowed.
