Plywood over light gage shear wall

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am trying to design a shearwall using the 2003 IBC for plywood sheathing over light gage metal studs.  the code says that the screws should be self drilling and tapping screws with a .292" head diameter.  I can't find the screw size that correlates to this head diameter.  Can anybody out there help me.

thanks,
Jim Bessley
