Sized down the chain

Two links were removed from the previously sized chain for a total of three links removed from a brand new chain. This is how it looks cross chained small/small, 34 front and 11 rear...

This is how it looks cross chained big/big, 50 front and 36 rear...

It seems to shift fine but my main concern right now is the B screw and how it interfaces with the derailleur hanger. The photo below was previously posted but it illustrates the angle at which the screw contacts the hanger. The further the screw is turned in, the more acute the angle until eventually the screw simply falls off the edge of the hanger.

The pulley doesn't contact the big sprocket but the screw is barely touching the hangar and I'm not happy with the amount of metal it has to push against. Not sure what the solution is, or if there is a solution, or if I'm just being retentive.

A photo of how it sits now will have to wait until the wheel comes off.
