proper roofing nails for cbu

I know this has probably been discussed but don't feel like trying to weed through everything to find an answer. What are the proper roofing nails to use when fastening cbu such as Utilicrete, cement board not fiber board. And.... are these nails available to use with a roof nailing gun? The only nails to go with the guns I saw were galvonized. thanks!

I was wondering the same thing a few years ago. Here's the discussion:

Of course, I could not find hot dipped galvanized roofing nails at any one of the 20 or so hardware stores around here, so I finally gave up and went with paying a couple dollars more per sheet for the CBU screws. I'm sure you can order them if you can't find them either, but good luck!

I've had trouble finding these as well. Because i don't have a roofing gun i've been looking for a box of them with no luck what so ever. Someone here suggested going to a store like Ace or Hardware Hank but they don't have them either. Couldn't even find them online.
