Looking for a good load to shoot a 315gr round lead ball.

Current load is 35 gr Bluedot but its dirty & leaving the un/part burnt powder residue in bore.

Conograph is unavailable temporarily, but tes penetration was a 2" wet phone book and 1.5" fir board into a concrete wall making a 5/8" deep dent in wall.

Casings looked fine, just dirty so i suspect the powder charge is wrong for this weight bullet.

Any suggestions?
