Default how many grains of pyrodex?

I have a remington genisis that i hunt with. this past Sunday I shot a doe a little over a hundred yards using 100 grains of pyrodex. The trail had a few big splotches of blood in the snow within 30 yards of the point of impact. after that it lessened considerably, I followed it for over two miles until it went into a swamp, and it was getting dark. The rifle can take 150 grains of powder. The question is would it have made a major difference if I had used 150 grains instead of 100?
