Dillon for best price?

Looking for Dillon's, and I know they have to have some dealers out there with somewhat lower prices than their suggested retail price. Right now I'm in the market to upgrade my 450 to a 550, but would obviously like to save some dough!

From what I was told by my discount Dillon dealer in the beginning of 2006, Dillon no longer gives discounts to anyone. The best my guy could do was cut me a break on shipping. I am pretty sure he paid half the shipping on my Super 1050 and accessories.

Fluted- Thanks, I suspected that because I couldn't find anything lower priced than "suggested Retail". Oh well, figured it was worth a try checking with ya'll anyway!

I just received a catalog from Graf & Sons that I'm 99% sure had lower prices. The website shows the higher prices, but I believe I sent them a copy of my C&R license which often gets you a discount. I'll check it for you within about a day or so. My weekends are busy.

Also, have you tried Custom Glock Racing? I bought my Dillon stuff from them last year at a discount.

Call Brian and talk to him. He will help you get exactly what you need, and help you pick the right machine. His prices show list, but his shipping is a lot friendlier than anywhere else I have found. Even if he is a little more expensive the personal help and attention are well worth a couple more bucks. It isn't often you can get the personal help of a legend in the shooting sports.....

Alright, I found my Graf & Sons Catalog. It says, "To receive the 'Volume Dealer' prices in this catalog, you must possess a valid FFL, or a valid tax resale license for a business related to the shooting sports industry. All prices listed in this catalog have a 3% cash discount included, which cannot be earned by using a credit card." I think I got on their mailing list when I sent them my curio and relics license.
Some of the prices:

Square Deal B Dillon $310 G&S $263
550B Dillon $370 G&S $280
650XL (without casefeeder) Dillon $480 G&S $400
650XL casefeeder Dillon $190 G&S $164
Super 1050 Dillon starting at $1480 G&S starting at $1231
SL900 (with casefeeder) Dillon $890 G&S $749

so does that mean a C&R FFl works with Graf and sons?

I'm almost sure that somebody at Graf's would be happy to answer the phone and give you a definitive answer regarding their dealer account requirements.

I just double checked with Willy at Graf. He verified that the C&R FFL gets you the dealer prices.
