Yes, there are more things to consider like sudden structural settling. I can take a hammer and snap a drywall screw if I whack it really hard whereas a wood screw would just bend. My question assumes total structural stability. Being that I am no physicist, what does your equation/expression/whatever it is equate to? What's it saying in plain, layman's English terms?

So, Martin, you're saying that, assuming the clips are spaced in such a way that the weight is evenly distributed, calculating how much weight these 25 screws can collectively support is as easy as taking the weight a single screw can support and multiplying that by the number of screws in the assembly?

Thanks for the comments. Updated my answer with a diagram of my entire clip assembly.
