A 16d nail will shoot all the way through two 2X4s leaving some sticking out the other side, those things are a little rough when handling, we always used 12s.

Back when I was framing houses in college we used standard 16d nails, I learned that if you angle the nails a little they won't stick out the other side, plus they hold a little better. I wouldn't frame with smaller nails, they just aren't as good.
