Level III Body Armor Definition

While level 2 and level 3A body armor can protect against small arms fire (handguns), level 3 body armor is designed to withstand various rifle rounds, shotgun rounds, and semi-jacketed hollow point bullets (SJHPs). Level III body armor can withstand all handgun rounds and rifle rounds up to 7.62mm NATO FMJ (M80).
