who around the Portland area handles (stocks) Black Powder stuff??
Wholesale Sports on 82nd has the typical hunter stuff. No true black powder but they have Pyrodex, 777, and the pellets.
Don't rule out the ever underestimated Bi-Mart.
'Real' BP is getting hard to find - which is why I caved and tried a can of Pyrodex a couple years ago - and I'll never go back. I don't know where all the negative reports came from but I get better ignition and accuracy from it. It is really noticeable in my 1851 Navy pistol. I can tell I am getting much more velocity just from the way it feels when being shot. With Pyrodex it feels and sounds like a stiff .38 special load. With black powder it feels weak and underloaded - and that is with nearly the maximum amount I can cram in the cylinder - about 24 grains.
