Dirty little secret, I make my own 45 and 9mm and get a box of 45 for around $8 for 50 rounds.
In 2008 one caliber I could walk into Gander MT and buy (not that I needed to*, but could have) was 45 GAP.
*Ammo is like toliet paper, if I'm alive I will eventually use it, so I might as well stay stocked up.
No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!
I wait until the Sportsmans Guide has their $4.99 flat shipping sale and then buy in bulk. Nothing like receiving a 37 pound box of assorted ammo for only $4.99 shipping!

Recently I found .223 Federal Gold Medal Match ammo for 19 bucks a box. That price is unheard of so I bought 800 rds of it. They key is to shop hard and when you find a great deal buy it in bulk.
I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.
Humm... This gives me an idea for a new TV game show, "I've Got a Secret"! As the World Turns, I have only One Life To Live, as I drive to the General Hospital during Days of My Lives?

I think, therefore I am...
HSTs are around $26 per box of 50.
.40 caliber ammo is generally a few bucks more per box.
Buy all of the ammo you need at once to save on shipping. I think it's usually $12 to ship smaller orders.
I have all of the HSTs I desire so I'll show you the big secret everyone is keeping from you. Hopefully I won't be labeled as a domestic terrorist or traitor for sharing this extremely dangerous, top secret information with you.

Don't know what shipping costs are - I pick it up local.
Those small boxes are for the people that go shoot once every 2, 3, or more years. That is a large percent of gun owners too.
I never buy my SD ammo from a store. I did when I 1st got into guns but did some shopping around. Online is the best....

I dont buy anything of less than 500 rounds at a time.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
