No-357 Magnum is a rimmed cartridge that head spaces on the base rim.

Krunchnik is correct. No moon clips necessary for any .357 magnum handgun that I ever heard of.
Certainly not my NV .357.

single action revolvers don't use moon clips

rimmed cases (.38/.357, .45 Colt, .44 Mag) headspace on the rim

rimless cases (9mm, .45 Auto) headspace on the case mouth

there are double action .38/.357 revolvers which DO use moon clips to make unloading/reloading faster for competition, but that requires a swing-out cylinder design (vs the Single Action loading gate)

Asking questions about firearm functions is never stupid. Itís smart to seek answers for the unknown.
