The Best Semi-Auto Rifles By Caliber

Semi-automatic rifles come in so many different calibers, layouts, and action types that we can’t pick the “best” ones—and most modern semis do a great job of going bang when you pull the trigger. But picking the best rifle for a given caliber (and even deciding which caliber is right for you) can sometimes get confusing.

Based on conversations with firearms and military history buffs, competitive shooters, and our NRA-certified armorer and trainers, we can give you guidance on how to find the best semi-auto rifle for you.
