Jeff- Basically, anyone running their cables, pipes or gas lines through a stud or plate will nail plate it as required or they won't pass inspection. And it will be 18 ga. for plumbers and whatever the electricians here have referenced.

codes are bare minimum so assume the worst. I'm not sure why you're screwing trim anyways. I've always seen it glued and nailed.

Are you a contractor doing this work for someone? Perhaps asking over at http://www.contractortalk.com/ will help too.

I think we've all worked on things that shouldn't have passed inspection, yet there they are.

Gluing and butterfly nailing might work, but this is a picture rail. Screwing would be pretty standard for strength, I think. They do make those screws specifically for trim into steel studs, after all.

If it helps any- most plumbing pipes are in the lower half of the wall. Usually, only vertical pipes will be in upper part, and between studs
