I purchased an NcStar short muzzle brake for my 10/22 from a reliable vendor on eBay. When it arrived, I was already aware of replacing the set screw because of the reports of it stripping out.

When I removed it, I found it was a sharp-pointed set screw which there was no way I would put on my rifle.

I went to my local True Value hardware store and found for .42 cents a nice flat set screw of better metal. FWIW - it's a 4mm set screw.

Passing along the information I have for those that may consider adding this muzzle brake to their rifle.

I'm sorry for the fuzzy photo, but it's the best my camera would do trying to get close to the screw to show the difference between what came with the muzzle brake and what I bought at the hardware store.
