Roofing Nailers Hitachi / Bostitch What Nails


I plan on buying a coil roof nailer. A Hitachi NV45AB2 or a Bostitch RN46-1. I bought some nails already. Hot dipped galvanized and someone said they might not work in the Bostitch nailer. The (nail manufacturer) says they will work in them. Has anyone heard something about this or know if there is any truth to this on the Bostitch nailers using only their nails for roofing.
Thanks
Anthony

Are they wire collated? If so they should work.
I've used three different bands of nails in my Bostitch and they worked fine.
