I am fairly new to rifles in general so this may be a stupid question.

I have fully disassembled and cleaned several Mosins over the last few weeks (an M-44 and a 91/30) and have a noted that the trigger pull is much harder when I crank down on the sear screw, but becomes much easier to pull if the sear screw is backed out just a hair (1/2 to 1 1/2 turns). The screw seems to remain tight in that I cant loosen it further without a screw driver. Is this a reasonable way to adjust the pull on the trigger or is this a stupid move that will result in the screw backing out?

No! It has to be tight. A loose screw can cause a bump fire easily and unpredictably. Get a large blade screwdriver that fills the slot and it should be easy to turn. Polishing the contact surfaces of the sear will ease trigger pull.
