A clip is used to store ammo. A magazine feeds ammo into a firearm.

Here's an example of how clips can be used to assist in loading magazines.

4. Does that clip actually feed the rifle

or is it used to load an internal magazine?

6. Garand designed it to specifically control both feed of rounds and speed of the bolt closing

Single loading a garand and letting the bolt slam into battery WITHOUT a Enbloc is a no-no

10. Both

"By modern standards, the M1's feeding system is archaic, relying on clips to feed ammunition, and is the principal source of criticism of the rifle. Officials in Army Ordnance circles demanded a fixed, non-protruding magazine for the new service rifle"

Interesting read on the M-1 (Garand) here

ps: - yup - it's a "clip", but it STAYS in the magazine and assists feed of the cartridge/bullet

9. Did you know...

...that a ban on future sales of magazine clips will make the market dry up quickly as people shoot them and then throw them away after they’ve been used?

Yes, one idiot actually said that. Publicly, on tv.
