I was looking at a few 627's and noticed that they can be shot with or without using a moon clip. What is the advantage in using a moon clip with a .357?

Positive ejection of all cases and faster reloads.

Also, if you reload, you don't have to crawl around on your hands and knees picking up the brass.

It's all together in neat little six-round packeges!

Those would be neat little eight-round packages.

faster reloads

moons holding 8 long skinny rounds aren't quite as fast as those holding 6 big fat .45acp rounds (think pushing spaghetti). And getting fast with either still takes a lot of practice. Without that practice, a good revo shooter with speedloaders will still eat your lunch. Nonetheless, their 8-shot capacity make moonclipped-fed 627s very popular on the ICORE and Steel competition circles, but even they'll be shooting gamer loads that often use .38 Short Colt brass.
