I have often heard K Frame Smiths are great carry guns but are prone to this problem, "shooting loose" as well with a steady diet of hot loads.

They can shoot loose, but luckily, most things on a Smith and Wesson can be fixed, repaired, or modified rather quickly and easily. Fixing a loose revolver cylinder (on a Smith) takes maybe 5 minutes, I've done it.

A cracked forcing cone, however, can't really be fixed. Must be replaced, special tools used... And really, it's easier and damn near worth it to just buy a new gun, as per the stories I've heard.

Don't you just have to tighten the screw on the side of the frame

It might need to be shimmed.

Bingo.
Midway and brownell's sell shims, and Mr. Larry Potterfield has video tutorials on YouTube.

I know if you get the screw too tight the crane is hard to swing open

The cylinder can work loose and need to be shimmed on the ejector rod. Loose screws are no big deal.
