Stock Revolver in the only Revolver division, per 2017 rules, can't use moon clips, but speedloaders are good to go.
To use moon clips, you has to meet "enhanced revolver" rules:

2017 Rule Book
Quote
8.2.5 Revolver Division (REV)
Revolvers will be categorized into one of the two following sub-categories:
Stock Revolver or Enhanced Revolver

8.2.5.1 Stock Revolver handguns permitted for use must be:
  A. Any revolver that uses .38 Special or larger cartridges with a rimmed case and is not loaded with moon clips.
  B. The unloaded firearm must weigh 43.00 oz. or less.

8.2.5.2 Enhanced Revolver handguns permitted for use must be:
  A. Any revolver that uses .357 magnum or larger cartridges with rimmed or rimless cases.
  B. The unloaded firearm must weigh 50.00 oz. or less.
  C. May be loaded via speed loader or full moon clip.


8.2.6 Stock and Enhanced Revolver requirements:

8.2.6.1 The use of trimmed (shortened) ammunition is not allowed.

8.2.6.2 Ammunition used must match the cartridge listed on the firearm with the following exceptions:
  A. .38 special in .357 magnum
  B. .44 special in .44 magnum
  C. .45 Auto Rim or .45 GAP in .45 ACP
  D. .45 ACP or .45 GAP in .45 Colt
  E. .40 S&W in 10mm

8.2.6.3 Barrel length must be 4.25 or less.

8.2.6.4 Revolvers must be loaded to the division capacity of 6 rounds in the cylinder. Higher capacity 7 and 8 round
revolvers are permitted, but may only load 6 rounds.

8.2.6.5 Stock and Enhanced Revolver Permitted Modifications (Inclusive list):
  A. Sights may be changed to another notch and post type. The frame and barrel may be machined to accept
different style sights.
  B. Action work to enhance trigger pull as long as safety is maintained (smoothing the trigger face, removing the
hammer spur, use of over travel stop, conversion to DA only and addition of ball detent are considered action
work and are permitted).
  C. Grips may be changed to another style or material that is similar to factory configuration, provided they do not
weigh more than 2.00 oz. more than the factory standard weight for that model.
  D. Grip tape, skateboard tape, etc. may be used.
  E. Cylinder latches may be changed to another factory offering from the firearm manufacturer.
  F. Chamfer the rear of the chambers.
  G. Shortening of factory barrels.
  H. Re-barreling to another factory offering for that model.
  I. Firearms converted to accept moon clips may be used in Stock Revolver provided moon clips are not used.
