I was having a rifle shipped by a local dealer in MA and overheard him telling a customer that he can only sell ammunition to someone from out of state if he sells it with the firearm.

1) Is it true that factory ammo can not be shipped from MA to other states?

2) Can factory ammo be shipped out of state from MA along with a firearms purchase?

3) Can ammo reloaded for a firearm be shipped out of state from MA when the firearm is sold?

Note- This is for rifles, not handgun & ammo.

Non-residents cannot purchase firearms ammo in MA. However, mail order ammo should not be a problem.

Unfortunately, he can't legally sell any firearms to a resident of another state, period. If "firearm" is taken to mean a rifle or shotgun, then it's against Mass law; if it's limited to the Mass usage of a handgun, then it's against both Mass and federal law.
