It's been a while since you posted your question. But if you're still interested in knowing, I used the long allen head screw. The shorter screws (both phillips and allen) were too short to use. They weren't even long enough to reach the threads. This is on the 1-8x scope and may not be the same for the 1-6x. Someone else will have to chime in on that particular scope.

As for allen head or phillips head preference, I prefer the allen head. The phillips head tends to get gouged up and/or strip out easier than the allen head. Hope this helps.
Sometimes I wonder why I even bother. Some people are just incapable of understanding the simplest of things.
