Answers

That is correct. Unless your engineer has specified their use for that application I would not use in that way. They are perfect for fastening beck boards, treads etc and remember times 2 is the math to determine the screw needed.

Are these construction screws approved for ACQ outdoor pressure treated lumber?

No, these are zinc plated and are not rated for outdoor use. The pressure treating chemicals will "eat" through the zinc plating. I would suggest getting the specially coated versions.

Answers

Hank or anyone, I would not use this screw this way. Make no mistake about it that are an amazing screw however I would look for and use a screw for that application. Not all screws are the same. Good luck, another idea is to have you engineer do the "math" for your application.

Yes I would recommend these screws. They drive really well & have alot of bite to them... They will also pull the wood so tight that they counter sink themselves.

Used them to build this little produce stand out of reclaimed wood and scrap 2x4s. Didn't need to pre-drill pilot holes. I highly recommend using a 20V drill or Impact driver for it.

scratching my head
i have used these for several years. if you are building where there will be any significant weight or any shear weight [90 degrees to the screw] you do NOT want to use drywall screws, no matter how long they are. these are much stronger in every way. however, in my last box I came across one that has me puzzled as to its application. [see pic] this is obviously a mistake and I have only ever found this one in all the boxes I have bought. but, if I find more in future boxes, I will be returning the box for exchange. this is a good product, but these are too expensive to get unusable ones.
