Need some bbl. securing ideas here; 1377 and 2289G

I've just free floated my Backpacker 2289G. I'm not happy with the way the barreled action is secured to the bottom tube (air tube ?). That little 4X40 keeps backing out after about 15 shots. I put a dab of white paint on it so I can watch it.

Is there any technique out there that will provide a more secure way of attaching the two items? I can handle most machining tasks. There really needs to be something up front that will assist that assist that teeny screw.

The rifle is shooting very well as is. Groups at 10 yds. are about 3/8 with Jumbo Exacts.

Thanks for any brainstorming.

What I did...

On my 13xx I drilled and tapped a second setscrew (I think I went bigger if I remember correctly... maybe like a #8) and also dimpled the barrel, were the screws set, with a drill bit. Seems to work good...for me anyway. Also, with the bigger screw you can crank it down and it seems to grab better.
