For the small set screws it's very important to have a screwdriver tip that fits perfectly.
Hollow ground is the best way to go also for all other flat screws on lenses - I grind the myself from a slight oversize one.
Gunsmiths use them as well.
Precision hollow ground is the strongest!

do you grind it by hand? :o :o :o
i think i need another one.

i broke mine, the metal was too brittle ::)

Yes, with a small Dremel grinder.
