Well for that and because I wanted one of everything length (416 10.4", 416 14.5", MR556 16" and 416 20"). 4 great tastes that taste great together!
If I could only obtain the M27 16.6" made of unobtainium, or at least at a price I'm willing to pay and without risk of it being a stolen Military barrel/upper. ;-)

"Just because you're paranoid doesn’t mean they're not after you!"
By that logic, why not a 14.5?
The guns it's competing against are hitting accuracy nodes typically from 2700-2800fps with heavy bullets.
My MR556 is throwing Hornady 75's at 2646.
The course of fire routinely demands shots on head sized targets out to 700Y, and every advantage on beating the wind is welcome. If they offered a 20" I'd take that.
ETA - If you meant this to be toward actual/field use, I would agree, but I'm speaking strictly competition.
The gun is definitely a shooter. This was at 200Y. The squares are 1".
I'm competing with it this Sunday because my regular rifle is down for the count.

Of course. I'm speaking more of velocity concerns with that as a hypothetical.
Q1 almost over, no rifle
You can buy the A1. They are starting to import more of those.
