S&W has made some true .38 Super revolvers [that] load with moon clips to avoid the risk that the extractor might not pull the empties by their semi-rims.
FWIW I've heard reports of S&W .32 Long revolvers breaking ejector stars after firing semi-rimless .32ACP ammo, and I'm convinced this is the reason why I've seen a couple of .32 Long S&W's with one prong missing from the ejector star. IMHO semi-rimless cases and S&W ejector stars don't mix unless moon clips are used.

Firing .38 Super in .357Mag revolver is on my "possible but don't try it" column.
