Can I use ring shank nails for framing?


Can I use ring shank nails for framing? I have a box of 8d galvanized ring shank nails (2 1/2") for my nail gun. I was wondering if ring shank nails are fine to use in stud framing (toe nailing).

Sure, they'll be fine. Code requires three 8d's for each stud to plate connection.
