FWIW I replaced a few of the HK22 screws for my 300 F2.8 AFS by visiting a model rail road hobby shop where I found nearly identical Phillips head screws and nuts that the clerk said were used to hold the wheels on the model train.  I doubled up on nuts to lock them down then snipped the screws to length to attach to the hood.  I covered the screws with some vinyl tubing from a hardware store so it was snug in the groove on the lens.

Best part is the fix is better than new.
