The Absolute Best Top 5 Battle Rifles In The World

We will show you the all time best modern battle rifles in the world, a “Battle Rifle” is the name used for a select-fire rifle that fires a full caliber cartridge such as 7.62×51mm NATO. Compared to modern assault rifles and their intermediate cartridges like the 5.56×45mm NATO, the higher-caliber rounds provide greater power and range, though they have greater weight and produce stronger recoil, making them less than ideal for fully automatic fire. The designation of battle rifle is usually given to post-World War II select fire rifles, like the ones shown below.
