Quicksilver Zinc-Plated Woodscrews Double-Countersunk 8ga x 5/8" Pk200
I had occasion to replace about 10 metres of close boarded fence arris rails with galvanised brackets. It took about 250 screws. These screws seem prone to camming out and as such cost me two driver bits. The Quicksilver 3" countersunk drove straight in so I suspect it's the screw not me. Did the job though and they seem to be heavily plated so no real complaints.

Good value purchase
No a lot to say about screws but the quality seems fine. These days I always visit Screwfix first and generally it's far better value than the DIY stores. Buying in these quantities makes sense.

Securing Loft legs to joists
The task was to secure Plastic Loft legs to the joists and not have the screws pull through the plastic. The display showed countersunk screws used but I could see problems if any sideways pressure was made.
The round head was the perfect answer as a quick clearance hole and screw down to the joist felt really secure. Job was a good'un!
