Question Hanging 15lb shelf

I am trying to hang a 15 lb shelf that will hold 100 CDs to drywall. I am using a #10 screw into a plastic anchor, however, I screw the screw all of the way in and there is no tension. The shelf will not stay flush to the wall. Any ideas?

Drill larger holes and use the butterfly-type anchors. aka toggle anchors, as shown here:

being used for a towel bar.
