Can I get "contractor prices" on building materials?

The short answer is Yes. The more complex answer is that there is no fixed discount called "contractor pricing." If you buy a trainload of material you could expect a better discount than if you are buying a small amount. Most small contractors build one or two homes a year and for most purposes you will be treated in that same category by vendors and subcontractors. One of the benefits of working with the Owner Builder Custom Home program is that some suppliers will treat you as a large volume custom builder, thereby offering bigger discounts.
