According to the specs on the page you linked to, "Package Quantity 365".


I weighed 25 of these 3" X 9 composite deck screws and got 5.8 oz. a box of 5 lbs has 80 oz. so 80 divided by 5.8 = 13.79 (25 screws). so 25 X 13.79 = about 344 screws. so give or take a few and the previous answer of 365 is likely close.
