Let me rephrase that...
When & why would you use a P2R bit rather than a regular P2 bit? Are drywall
screws specifically meant to be driven with P2R bits? It seems that P2R bits
are more broadly purposed than just for drywall...
Looking for more than Google gives on P2R... (although now that I know it
stands for Reed-Prince, I do find more). But Googling "P2R" only says it's
for drywall, which I find ... an incomplete answer.
So, no, Google is not always the answer.

If it works in a Phillips head screw, what the hell's the difference if
it is a P2R bit or a #2 Phillips bit?.
Just hold on to it until you get screws that it will only fit.
All this crap because of a number on a bit.
I have a bunch of twos and they are all different shapes. There seem to be
a differing variety of shapes for different tasks. I do know that different
shapes perform better at one thing and another.
That is supposedly a special drywall screw bit, but I use them
for everything if I have them and I can't tell a whole lot of
difference except that they are narrower than a standard #2 along
the body of the bit.
