Well, as I have lots of .45 ACP laying about I decided to try a new way of shooting it so I bought a Smith & Wesson 625 JM.
The gun is fun to shoot and accurate but Gawd I hate loading and unloading moon-clips. What a nuisance.
I think I will just buy a hundred os so and load them all up at once and then just stop shooting the 625 until I gather up enough patience to unload and load the whole batch again.

Still, a good accurate handgun but Yeesh... moon clips... :evil:

If you have a lot of ammo to work through, this little toll could save you your fingers, and your patience.

I rarely shoot more than 120 rounds at a time with my 625-3 Model 0f 1989 gun, so I just use a simple de-mooner I bought decades ago. Even at that, I've considered this tool.

My pal Greg used to have a couple of them and they were both beyond scary accurate . It was hilarious watching him run stages at an IDPA event and whipping most of the pistol shooters there . Of course he practices and .... well , what they did was obvious . He had tools for loading and unloading the clips that made it simple . As much as he ( and I ) liked it when the local IDPA fell apart he sold them both .

Alas , now the poor lad has gone to a nine millimeter pistol and all but abandoned the big bore :(

Y'all do recall that, originally (WW1 era), it was half-moon clips and they probably weren't intended to be reused?

Also, this is why they came out with .45 AutoRim back around 1930something. I haven't studied the load data much, but from what I have read, it's just like loading .45ACP.

I had several boxes of autorim that I gave to my pal , the gun digested them as well as anything .

I suppose it's a matter of what would you rather load in the gun , loading press and other such things .
