What was your fouling control routine?

I ran a damp patch after each shot, just damp with my spit, it was dirty but not excessive

Two damp (use water instead of spit) and one dry will help a lot. Your last shot may simply be an example of fouling out. If the cartridge chambered at all roughly then I would almost guarantee that's what it was, but even it chambered okay, this could be happening.

Brent is spot on 2 damp with water or some concoction involving mostly water, and possibly a 3rd one if the last patch comes out grungy. Sometimes a dry patch after the second damp works very well.
