    Default Moon Clips

    I've got a Ruger SRH that Wild West Guns has modified to use moon clips. This is the first time I've been around moon clips and have a couple of questions.
    Are the moon clips made to fit certain brands of brass? I tried them with Hornady, they fit to loose.
    With Starline they are really loose, falls out. WW brass they fit good. CBC brass was a good fit. All the above was .454 brass
    Is this normal?
    Are the loaded moon clips supposed to fall into the cylinder loosely?
    Are different moon clips needed for 45 Colt?
    And can I buy extra moon clips from WWGuns?
    The gun and the workmanship are top notch, I just need an education on moon clips.
    Thanks, Doug

    One more thing, how do you get the ******* empties out of the moon clips ???????????

    Too late, already fired a couple hundred rounds of .454.
    As for as I can tell I'm still alive
    It wasn't "converted to 45acp", it'll fire 45acp, 45 Colt along with .454.


    I was mainly interested in what brass fits what, and Ken answered that for me by phone.
    I'm a little less ignorant about moon clips now.

    How or why would you convert a 454 to 45acp?
