Like I said I had a similar experience before with another set of 390bosses, so I was extra careful with my brand new set. I did use #3 screwdriver. Way to still recommend drilling the screw out when I clearly stated I didn't want to and was looking for other options.

I will however try an extractor first and then an impact driver. Thanks for those advice.
