The first level of protection against rifle rounds is Level III body armor. To be classified as Level III, plates must be able to withstand six shots from a 7.62x51 NATO round traveling at 2780 ft/s. They are also capable of countering AK 47 rounds.
Hard rigid plates commonly made of ceramics, polyethylene, steel, or titanium are used for this armor protection level. They usually have a back-lining of pressed laminate which enhances its resistance power.
