Fritz, I find that soot can also be caused by poor bullet retention, slow powder or weak primer, particularly in a generous military chamber.

If the bullet pops out of the case before the neck expands and seals, sooting will occur.

If you want to shoot lighter loads, you could try to seat a bit deeper, faster powder or apply a crimp.
