I expect the chipped head nails were driven by a pneumatic nail gun.

I've seen some pneumatic nails that have a curved section cut out of the head so that the head of the next nail fits in that cut out section. That allows the gun to hold more nails.

Thats it ??
I think this is the first time i didnt have to scroll to read a post with your name next to it Thanks for the response.

I have a full round head framing gun and when i use shorter nails (2" or 2-1/4 cant rember) they have a tendency to get jammed if i put two sticks in... i friend thought if the gun could except chipped maybe it would not jam being the nails would be closer together, similar to what your saying.

Clipped head nails can be collated right next to each other with no gap. Full round head nails have to be spaced apart a little bit. More shots per magazine load with the clipped heads, smaller boxes (given the same weight).

As KCT clarified, the actual classification is "Clipped" head.
