Yes, a magazine is box and the clip is a spring. So what?
A clip is not a spring and it's not part of the magazine (except in the unique case of an en-bloc clip). A clip is a strip of metal that holds rounds by the case rim for loading into a magazine or a cylinder.

Their purpose is different and they aren't the same. Sure, feel free to use the words interchangeably, and most of the time people will figure out what you mean, but it will still be incorrect.
