I currently run a TR24-3G on my 3 gun AR15 and really like it. My TR24-3G is the only quality optic I own and have zero experience with the long range/high power optics.

I'm going to be shooting a little sniper style match and want a little more magnification. I plan to be shooting out to 600 yards and doing some small target shooting (3-5") out to 300. We will also be doing some CQB shooting but I may mount my RMR at 45 degrees for anything inside 50 yards.

I was wondering which if these two Accupoints you think would be better suited for the job?

These two are what I assume you are talking about, right?   If so I would go with the 3-9, should be all you need for an AR.  Its lighter and i don't think you will see a big difference in the .5x on the low in and 1x on the top end. 
 
 
That said I would go with this instead - SWFA SS 3-9x42 Tactical Riflescope

its a perfect fit for an AR and very very durable.  I have one on a 308 and have no issues exceeding downing targets smaller than you want at those distances.

The Trijicon Accupoint 3x9 is a really nice scope that, imho, works really well for night hunts, but it only has 48 moa of adjustments. It is quite short if you have a 20 moa base - you might run the risk of not making zero (happened to a friend of mine).

Trijicon's value, in my opinion, is the low light shot.  If these are bench or match guns, Trijicon would not be at the top of my list.

If you are doing a sniper style match, I would think you'd need something that has target turrets, taht eliminates the 3-9 and 2.5-10X.

I'm actually going to be shooting the carbine side of the two man sniper match at Tiger Valley. I don't think I will need to be dialing up for longer shots. My team mate will be doing the real long precision stuff. I think I will need to be equally balanced on closer speed shots with a BDC reticle.

I like the Accupoints because of the no battery option and the green illumination.

It wouldn't apply to your needs you wouldn't be using a 20MOA mount on an AR for what your looking at doing, nor would you come near maxing out the adjustment range for what you described

I plan to use a LaRue LT140 or LT139 mount so I can switch between my 1-4x optic for 3 gun and this new higher power scope.

If you get the Trijicon, get the green mil dot.  The triangle makes things tricky (you can be fast or accurate, but not both, and often neither.)

I love the 3-9 green mildot and use one on my Wilson Combat 6.8 for hunting
I flip between it and a Micro T1

fantastic scope for hunting, but I wouldn't call it a target scope per se
