After reading the UFOpaedia and the   XComUtil 9.7 documentation, I am still unclear on what is supposed to happen  to clips.  I understand it as:
-Loaded clips, rockets, stun bombs, and blaster bombs--but not HWP shells or rockets--are used up whether full or not;
-Unloaded [same items] are not used up.
But  careful accounting of c. 5 missions--including unloading every alien  weapon (except sometimes, FOR, the last killed)--does not always agree  with this.

I believe all full clips are retained regardless of being loaded or not. Unsure of what happens to partially used clips but logic dicates they would be considered 'spent'.

Also why not check out XCom : Colonisation over in the special projects forum. Won't kill you if you do, might kill you if you don't!

This thread explains things fairly well.
