Can you order components direct from a manufacturer?
Can an individual order primers, brass, bullets or powder from say winchester, remington, or federal directly? or do you have to be a dealer?

I can spend $30 for a part from the manufacturer, or $25-$27 at a local dealer. I have yet to find a manufacturer that will undercut a local dealer. But, at times, the local dealer doesn't have it...
