The M1Garand is the only gun that I know of that uses a clip and 30 rounds will not fit in the gun. Are these real police? I would hate to have them investigate anything. I have seen some 10 round stripper clips but these are just a holder and the rounds must be removed form the clip to be used as no gun that I know of fires out of a stripper clip.

SKS does as well, 10 rounds. Will knock the bark right off of your thumb if you don't do it right.
The 1903 Springfield (the standard USA battle weapon from WWI up to the beginning of WWII, when it was replaced by the M1 Garand) employed a five-round clip. In fact, the 1903 Springfield, as a surplus rifle, became a very common deer hunting rifle in civilian use (hell, when I was in the US Air Force, I belonged to the Rod & Gun Club on several of the bases on which I was stationed, and at one in Texas we used Club 1903s to hunt javelina). It was chambered in .30-06, as was the Garand.

I hqce stripped clips for my Springfield M1A but, I can’t even feed 5rounds into the mag without the handy tool for breaking down my gun.
I tried over and over but gave up. You need some mists to fill an inserted mag off stripped clips.

“Are these real police? I would hate to have them investigate anything.”
Remember, you are not reading the police press release, you are reading the media’s account of that press release.
The modern (Browning) BAR is semiautomatic and uses a 3 or 4 round clip depending on caliber of the rifle. A plate on the bottom of the receiver swings down’ the clip mounted then the plate swings closed to complete loading. So, here's a real rifle clip example and I am sure there are other examples. It is a faster reload than inserting individual shells such as most bolt, pump, lever and semiautomatic rifles use but you do need a big pocket full of clips to have many reloads ready to go.
