I think I see what you are trying to achieve. I thought that may be this paper would be a better choice, until I realized that it was fibre-based, not resin-coated.

My thoughts are that some pre-flashing of the papers before the camera exposure might be a better way of controlling contrast? A soft working metol developer like Ilford ID-3 diluted more than usual may also help.

A yellow filter on the camera lens would act as a low grade number filter too for multigrade.
