Simpson Strong Tie primer needed

I am building a shed that calls for Simpson H2.5s to tie in the rafters to the topl plate and H4s from the studs to the top and to the bottom plate

1) Is there a better option/combo ?

2) What is the approved nailing pattern or do you just fill up all the holes with nails.

3) are Simpson nails the best way to go ?

I found the answer to one of the questions
You do have to fill all holes with fasteners.
It's all in the way you word the search and how far you are willing to read into the page.

Simpsons nailsdo seem to be the best option because you have to "cinch down" all protruding nails


Still left with the question of better alternatives
