So lets some a few pics.

Why is it considered, by some, to be the best bbl length?

Have you checked the SBR pic thread?

As for why some comsider it best, it just hits a nice spot there.  More reliable than the shorter lengths but even with a Phantom or Vortex attached it's shorter than a 14.5" with a bare muzzle.

More reliable, more velocity.

It can be made to fit certain cans like the SPR/M4 or 12th with pretty much all midlength rails.  An 11.5" barrel cannot do that.  It gives a nice boost in velocity which raises the range at which fragmentation no longer occurs by a huge amount over say a 10.5" barrel.  Its short enough... yet long enough.  I have an 11.75" barrel, not a 12.5" which is gaining popularity.  The length is just to fit my suppressor and rail combination.

For my rookie, general preferences ... if it's gonna be anything shorter than a 16" midlength, then my first choice would be to have a 12.5" with a can.

VLTOR doesn't make an 11" so it has to be a 9 or 10"

Should be a 10" right?

My long term goal, money no object and Magpul\BM doing their part would be a Masada\ACR with the retracting\folding stock and a 12.5" barrel chambered in 6.8mm SPC!!!

Make it select fire and stick a Schmidt & Bender short dot on it and to me, short of a plasma gun, I think that would be the most bad ass "be all-do all-end all" combat rifles ever!!!
