The clearance around the ejector, plus the chamfered chambers, are designed to decrease reload time. Bigger bullets with more taper are easier to align, we learned.
We found these 9mm moon clips were easier to load and unload and were less susceptible to bending. A fully loaded moon clip makes reloading fast, but aligning all eight rounds into the chambers can add time.
Rounds could be loaded one at a time, but they could not be ejected successfully. If you already use a 9mm Luger-chambered pistol for competition, it makes sense to have a revolver chambered in the same cartridge.
