Warning: I sell these in my hardware store. On the last batch of 1-5/8 that we got, I have been getting returns on every 25lb case sold due to the tips being blunt and unable to penetrate Into anything. This sale makes me think it must be a bigger problem. Would like to find out others experience since I'm sitting on a skid of 48 unsellable cases.

When he said "a ton," he most likely meant "a lot," not 2,000 pounds.

That said, a common 14x12 foot bedroom with eight-foot ceilings will use around three to four pounds of screws (local code, ceiling construction, stud spacing, etc. will vary).

So the advertised OP's 25 pound box should do for a standard three bedroom house with room to spare.

If it helps, 2,000 pounds of drywall screws would do for some thing like a small office building, say a 10-story 100,000 square foot cookie-cutter unit. YMMV.

If you have other cheeky questions, I highly recommend reading XKCD's "What If" pieces.

$1/lb for drywall screws is insane! Wish I was doing a reno to justify the purchase.

I love the coarse thread, it bites into the substrate much better and faster.

How big of a building needs 2,000 pounds of screws?

Do you mean corner beads or drilling into metal?
Corner beads (metal) into wood - they are good.
Into metal work - need fine thread usually
Edit: Changed wording

These will not work for metal studs, there is a version for metal studs though.

For metal studs, the screws need a finer thread, one like this will work
