I had this problem on my savage any screw with a 2mm or 1.5mm that wasn't a socket head would round out with no warning. so far these hexhead screws are the best i've tried so far haven't had one strip on me yet. I have a bunch of them on both my savage and my buggy.
I have the RC Screwz set on one of my R40s and was having the same problem. I called RC Screwz to ask them what was going on. What they told me was that the hex tools and screws manufactured outside of the US (far east) are made slightly smaller. This is because they coverted from imperial units to metric and wern't accurate enough. The tools and screws manufactured in the US are using the correct conversion and are the correct size. If you get a matching driver for the screws, the fit will be correct.
It's looking like most if not all of the stainless screws are being manufactured in the US since you are all having the same problems.
This conversion thing doesn't sound correct to me. Converting from imperial is a really backwards was to do it. Especially in the far east where they are already set up for metric. Whatever the reason, there is a problem. If you call RC screwz they can tell you which brands of drivers fit properly.
