There should not be a silver screw on this (240v) receptacle. If there is you've got the wrong device.

So if there is no silver screw then the concept of a neutral should not enter into it.

If the idea of a white wire being used as a hot conductor is confusing to someone then maybe they should reconsider being an armchair electrician. This is a VERY common thing, there should be no concerns or issued with using a XX/2 cable for a straight 240v circuit.

Using XX/3 cable for a straight 240v circuit is wasteful, plain and simple.
And no, I am not cheap. I just despise wasting material.
