Moonclips designed for rimmed cartridges like the .38 are very thin compared to moonclips designed for rimless cartridges like the .45 ACP and are much more susceptible to damage from beng bent. It only takes a little bit of a bend to start causing problems. I am not trying to steer you away from moonclips but only want to make you aware of the differences. I have used 45 ACP moonclipped guns for many years in competition and am a huge fan. ,45 ACP moonclips also allow for a lot more "wiggle" of the rounds in the clip which helps the rounds self align with the chambers easily. On the moonclips for rimmed cartridges they are held more rigidly and have much less "wiggle". You have to get them lined up a little more carefully before they will drop in.
