Nailers/pack

Had a few questions on roofing.
How many nails ,on average,
come in the round coil packs that go in the roofing nail guns ?
An which size galv/ roof nail is recommended for asphalt shingles going on 1/2" sheathing ?
Thanks

Each coil (100 nails) equal roughly one bundle of shingles at 4 nails per shingle. (1 bundle = 1/3 square) You usually can't go wrong with 1" or 1 1/4" nails (assuming one layer) but you will need 1 1/2" for your ridge caps.
