Sounds like maybe a screw type problem, too long a shoulder or thread type. Thinner metal furring maybe too much torque on the screw gun?
You are using self drilling screws designed specifically for metal? right?
All steel studs?we always use fine thread self tappers on steel studs
the wood pointers seem to hold \well in the 25 gauge stuff, and the sharp tip bites into the metal instead vs the self-tapping tip pushing it away from the gun.Fine thread screws are good for 20 g metal and some 25g metal however recently it seems that a fine thread screw wont bite all 25 g metal. I would ditch the cordless tool and get a 4000 rpm screwgun and a box of 1 1/4 HiLo screws. They are also known as alternating thread screws. Problem solved
for the most part yes. we RARELY use the lighter gauge studs. mainly use the light gauge for temp containment walls, and for that the wall does not need to be perfect so it does not matter much if the screw does not countersink. but on heavier gauge studs if the fine threads dont want to screw in we will switch to coarse thread pointersAll steel studs?
