    Do C&R FFL holders have opportunities to buy reloading equipment at discounted prices? If so, are there any particular vendors that give good discounts?

    Midwayusa discounts C&R holders quite a a bit. I would estimate if you buy $300 of stuff from them, the discounts will easily exceed the cost of your FFL.

    A lot of Midway's "dealer" prices are the same as the regular price. And some of them are pretty good discounts. But lately it seems like more and more of them are just the regular full price.

    I get discounts at Midway, Midsouth, MidStates Cast Bullets, Sarco, Numrich, Brownells and even a couple finishing vendors for parkerizing, bluing, case color harding and browning. There is always Century, Hunters Lodge and Kambe Keep. Lee Precision and RCBS will discount die sets for "C&R" calibers.

    I am sure there are many others. The discounts range from 5% to 35%, some of the orders for bullets for reloading really add up for the discounts. I have probably saved close to $285 this year just on .38spl bullets. That was enough to pay for tangible Powder and Primers.

    Yes, Graf & Sons will give you dealer pricing if you send them a copy of your C&R & ask to be placed on their dealer list.

    If you are going to order from Midway, I might suggest that you do it before Jan 1st. They have had an across the board price increase on Jan 1st the last couple years, at least on the stuff I had in my wish list.

    yes, we do. depends upon product and dealer, btw.

    i save anywhere from 15 percent to zero.

    i got my FFL to save a 40 dollar ffl fee, lol for a gun i bought. my ffl cost me 30 dollars...yes, its a C&R, before i get flamed.

    get one, is my advice. youll save more than youll spend.

    FFL discounts

    FFLs other than C&R are pricey to have, just to have. I'm thinking we paid about $200 plus finger printing, etc. As as far as discounts go, they are not that big, especially when supplies are tight.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    I just bought an Aimpoint Micro T1. Midway sells it for $633 retail. It is $583.99 with C&R discount, so that right there pays for the C&R.

    That sounds like he's talking about a standard dealer FFL, not a C&R.

    Now, if I had the least bit of justification beyond "because it'd be fun", I'd love to have a Class-3 NFA dealer FFL, just to get away with having modern NFA 'demonstration piece' armaments on hand, but that's an entirely different sort of trouble and aggravation to go rounds with the bureaucracy for! (Likely a couple of extra decimal places, once you take into account all the extra nonsense required, too!)

    the original question specifically asked about C&R...so i answered it appropriately.

    Hmmm...that might be because I have types 6 and 7 licenses to manufacture ammunition and firearms I don't think ATF let's you do that with a curios and relics (C&R) license.

    Well, I read your initial response to mean you paid that much for a C&R, not your other licenses...........good for you

    Yes, the best discount I have found is Graf and Sons. Usually 10% to 15%. The worst I have found is Midway.
