No, I'm going by the rules for tunneling in ITL. IIRC blasting walls created 
by Create Wall is even easier: 5 points blasts through a Created wall, but 
that much Lightning only blasts 25 cm into solid stone.

By the book, Lightning is slightly more efficient - 10 St put into Open 
Tunnel will clear 1 hex, while 10 St put into Lightning will clear 175 cm of rock, 
slightly more than one hex. Your house rule might have been that Open Tunnel 
opens one *megahex* - which would make it more efficient.
