I am having MSTN build my upper. Do any of you guys have a preference for either of these lengths of barrels? Would like to shoot minimum of 69 grain out to about 600 yds. Which would you recommend?

I will say that Wes loves the 18" barrel and if Im not mistaken, has ditched all his 16" barrels and replaced them with 18" ones.

[center][size=4][b]18" !![/b][size=4][/center] (By 1963 ArmaLite had reduced barrel length from 20" (AR-15/M-16) to 18" on their AR-18 and later the AR-180 and were still getting 3150fps+ with 55grn in a 1:12 twist barrel.)

If your range is going to be 600 yards, I'd go for the extra 2" of barrel :)
