If the grip cap has a medallion in the middle you must remove it to access the screw head. This will mean being very careful at not messing up the logo medallion. It also is glued on. Heat applied via a slave heat source...heat up a metal rod and use it instead of a direct flame....will soften the glue and the plastic. Most glues turn loose around 500 degrees. Again be careful.

If you are just going to refinish the gunstock... then my suggestion is to leave it alone and tape off the plastic with good masking tape. Use very little stripper around the cap area to preclude any stripper bleeding under the tape and damageing the gripcap.

If you just want to replace the cap with another ....it doesn't make any difference how you get it off. Be gentle and don't damage the wood in the process.

If the medallion gets trashed you can get them from Ruger.
