Having several 6.8 variants I've never paid much attention to the the grendel variants. Given I have aquired a 243 LBC I'm gonna have to come up with dies and brass. I was chatting with 204AR in a pm and he mentioned 6 arc dies adjusted up would work? Anyone been down this road?

Grendel brass will work mighty fine.

Yep, it's just a matter of bumping the shoulder back a little more, if i recall correctly.

Since I helped develop it from the start I'll clear that up. The shoulder is not bumped back in any LBC case. It uses the original shoulder location on the body.

Using a 6 ARC die all we are doing is holding off the shell holder. The die while not touching still allows enough sizing and is adequate to have no issues in feeding or chambering.
