What is the correct nail

What is the correct nail and drill size used to blind nail the first few rows, can't seem to find it ? Using Bellawood 2 1/2" strips.

Thanks Gk

Actually, you should only have to nail the one strip at the wall, after that the tongue can be nailed either, either manually or with a gun. I use the nail as the drill bit, with the nail in the chuck. Can be a bit tricky getting started, but always a perfect sized hole.

What size 6d...7d...8d...I would think 6d would be enough. Any thoughts on this?
