Wichester M17

Does any of our Gunsmiths know why The M17 type actions have a tang screw going forward of the action towards the trigger, I think about 6dg
There must be a reason why ? many others of this type action followed
I have my ideas why, I think ,
I have almost finished my latest project with a Winchester M17 and was going to correct it but have since shot it the way it is in a prototype stock and it shoots very very well with one of my prime barrels in 6mm
so are we pulling down the screws at the right angle ?
