Note, with the above method, you would be foregoing the web2py form 
processing functionality, which among other things protects against CSRF. 
If you want to allow the grid to handle the form processing and callback as 
usual but still short circuit the redirect, you could do something like 

def mygrid(*args, **kwargs):
        return SQLFORM.grid(*args, **kwargs)
    except HTTP as e:
        if e.status == 303 and 'records' in request.post_vars:
            del request.post_vars.records
            del request.post_vars._formname
            return SQLFORM.grid(*args, **kwargs)

def myfunc():
    return dict(grid=mygrid(..., selectable=mycallback))
