    Is 16" the magic number is it? Why is that ?

    Most AR10 .308`s have 16" barrels for portability.
    IMO 16" is a bit short...you`ll be losing velocity if you shoot factory ammo and will be bloody loud if you ever want to use it without the suppressor.
    I would go for 18" myself.

    There are a lot of threads and articles about this. But generally speaking 16 inch is considered the way point before you lose to much in performance. The 08 cartridge is quite efficient and most of you powder is burnt by 16 inches. Also makes for a handy rifle as most suppressors are around 4 inches foward so will leave you with a 20 inch carbine length rifle.
