Too bad the "loose screw" got your mind spinning.
Your first picture had you thinking the -60 was a good one except for a flyer.  Now you started out there and again the "best" one.
When you try it again with the torqued screws take a close look at -.065, -.060, -.055  there might be one node in that ballpark as well as somewhere in the re-tested ones closer to the lands.

If .060 works out do I get to change my original vote?😁

Great job on the control group.  I'm with you at .045 all day.  I began tracking what I coin as my "three shot cold bore group."  There's nothing like a cool head and a cool barrel.
See you at the range.
