Wood Framed Shear Wall w/ gypsum wall board and screws

Wood Framed Shear Wall w/ gypsum wall board and screws

I am looking for shear wall values.
The IBC 2009 had values. I am using IBC 2012 for this project.
The table in IBC 2012 does not reference screws anymore.

Is there an ESR report or something that has screw values for shear walls.
Or can I use an IBC 2009 table for an IBC 2012 project?

Go to Table 4.3C of the AWC SDPWS-2008 (American Wood Council Special Design Provisions for Wind & Seismic-2008 edition)
