The tapered bit I use is the same length as the nail and maybe 3/4 the width of the widest part of the nail. On the example shown I drilled the pilot hole almost as deep as the nail shank. I wanted the nail to get a good bite without risking a split. BTW, the nails I use are handmade and the profile varis along the shank.
