I don't mean to beat a dead horse, but I think that if Simpson had tested 
their connections with their 1-1/2" nails, that they would have specified 
"N10" nails in their tables, not 10d.

Also, minimum embedment for full shear values is 12 diameters, which for a 
10d common is 1.78 inches, otherwise, the shear value has to be reduced.
