Need ideas to carry loaded moon clips to the range.  I would think a 120 rounds for a 1800 but unless you have a bad load I would think a revolver shouldn't fail.  The two things I have tried so far, Pelican cases are too big and would take up to much room on the bench.  The right food storage container would work but finding the right one is going to be a shopping task.   Looking for ideas.  Don

Military ammo cans. Use the size that works best.

I use plastic organizers. I have a larger one that I put the tools into as well and a smaller one if I'm just taking lots of moon clips.

That was the answer I was looking for I had seen your pic before but wasn't sure which container it was.  Putting two on order.  Amazon is where I shop.  Thanks.  Don

Greetings,

I place all my loaded Moon clips in a 25# shot bag.

When the 45 match starts, I empty the bag and line them up in pairs.

As I shoot, I fill the shot bag with empties.

Once home, I use a de-mooner tool and place all the empty clips on a shower curtain ring.

Cheers,

Dave

Dave thanks for the memories.  I haven't seen a 25 pound shot bag for 54 years when 12ga was all I loaded and a bag of 7 1/2s was $5.25.  As a 16 year old kid that was a lot of money.  Don

Ouch that hurts.  I load Federal Low Brass paper hulls for 67 cents for 25 rounds.  Duck and goose loads were a dollar something.  Yes that is why I sold my MEC loader when I got to Pax River in 67 as a E2 just married I could afford supplies.  I still have some of those loads from the early 60s in my gun cabinet.  Along with some .243, 30 06 and 250 3000  Don

Flambeau (Dick's) plastic fish tackle boxes have compartments that just fit my 9mm loaded clips.  I usually have 4 cells of various loading configurations, 10 rounds each.  The box captures each loaded clip tight enough to prevent rattling around and will have long spaces left over for various tools.  The boxes stack nicely and fit in my range bag.  I use a smaller open plastic box for the fired clips, preventing ignition debris from mucking up the bottom of the unfired storage box. FWIW.
