"...What's up with the heavy torque..." Simple. Ruger doesn't want you fiddling with it. Really tight, like any screw on a car(put in with a nuclear screw driver), is the result of the fear the manufacturers have of a screw coming loose. As daft as that sounds.
No impact drivers. A drop or two of penetrating oil with the rifle in a padded vice and a long screwdriver.
And there are 2 stock screws.(Gunparts has an exploded drawing). One goes through the trigger group into the tang of the receiver. The other goes through the stock into the receiver under the chamber. Either one of 'em can be held in with torque or Lock-Tite. The latter requires a bit of heat(No torches. A soldering iron on the screw will do.) to loosen.
