How much difference is there between a 18 and 16 inch barrel noise wise? My ears can't tell the difference between my 21in. Fal and my 18in M1A. To me, a 16in 556 is louder than my 18in. 7.62 What do you guys think?
I'm trying to decide between a 18in Fal or a 16in LAR-8 midlength. It will have a FH, not a brake.

After having both 18's and 16's, personally I'd go with an 18" tube in .308. Less blast & BS and a little more velocity. Besides, you won't really notice the extra 2".

When I had a 16" .308 Saiga I could easily tell the muzzle blast was a lot louder than .308 in a Garand or Rem 700. I wear puffs + muffs at the range and I could hear the diff.
