Making historically accurate paper cartridges

Gents, I've been scouring the web for hints on what the load was for troops of the revolution with the .69 cal Charleville and .75 Brown Bess.

Since the first Springfield muskets were copies of the Charleville in both design and caliber I can assume the load specs didnt change much up into the Mex-Am war.

Can you give me an idea of some of the loads that were being used in the period from 1770-1815 with the Charleville, Brown Bess and Springfield muskets?
ex. weight of musket ball and weight of powder charge.

Info on safe present day loads is helpful too.
