We at hoplite would like to thank everyone for the continued support in bringing a top tier weapon system to market.
As we are nearing the end of fine tuning and the finishing touches that should be expected from a rifle of this quality, we also have some interesting changes internally.
Moving forward one of Hoplite Arms’ managing partners Theis Protov , will be using his unique skillsets researching alternative projects and revenue streams; one can never sit idle in the market.
With the change of mission, Theis will have less time for customer service as well as having less time bringing the customer through the Hoplite Arms journey.
Original customers that have put a down payment towards a rifle with Theis as the main point of contact will still be handled by Theis, through delivery if wanted.
At times when Theis is unavailable the information will be given by another Hoplite Arms employee, keeping our promise to always inform the customer of both “Good and Bad” news.
New customers and contacts will initially be handled by another original managing partner, Brian Finamore.
Brian will also be the lead contact for social media, email and future business contacts during these exciting times.
Additionally in this time of change, Hoplite Arms headquarters will be moving from Enon Louisiana, to Texas….back to where it all started.
With Theis traveling more often, the need for our current brick and mortar location has also changed.
Recently Hoplite has acquired the services of Enrique Erdmenger a professionally trained gunsmith.
Although all parts and assemblies are QC’d prior to assembly, we at Hoplite believe that final assembly being performed by trained professional will create the best product possible.
Hoplite has also expanded our envelope of knowledge into the ammunition side of the firearms market.
We have contacted David Thomas for the loading of custom match ammunition; which some may have seen at the Precision Rifle Expo in Blakley Georgia in late October.
For those who did not attend or have missed screen shots on social media from the on-site Shot Marker System; it can be said that the ammo was absolutely some of the most accurate ammunition attendees had ever seen.
Hoplite Arms is excited to bring these new services and skillsets to the Hoplite Team, continuing our goal of constantly moving forward with the mission statement of creating the best possible weapon system we know how.
While there may be a change in voice, the mission statement of Hoplite Arms to be transparent while providing a world class weapon system stays the same.
Feel free to PM for any information or questions you may have.
As you can imagine we are always looking forward and thinking of the future, the conversation never stops around here.

Quick question, will the partner, Brian Finamore, that is taking over the lead on Hoplite Arms rifle production and fulfillment be on SH as well, or is it e-mail / phone as their main means of communication?
I will still be on SH for any assistance too as long as site is not blocked due to Countries restrictions. Some countries have SH blocked and now that TOR and such are a huge pain in the ass for SH it may not always be a viable "get around".
Although the time available will be random and all sorts of different times zones involved.
I met Brian at PRE... good guy and represented the team well!Yes to all three..
Once all ducks are in a row Brian will be available on phone, email, SH as well.
Hoplite still believes in speaking directly to the customer on every possible occasion.
For the time being pm “Hoplite Arms”/this user name and all information will be routed through Brian and or Theis for accurate information.
Our plan is to become a better company not change our core values.
Any hope of resurrecting your ballistic app with the upcoming changes?
Hope these products include a full kit of track suits with ammo holders, like a pocket protector for ammoBeat me to it…wife is slave driving this morning.
Happy thanksgiving giving guys
Some really nice product, ideas and media are coming soon, just a little while longer
Flat top mushroom head firing pin plus .001” clearance between firing pin and firing pin hole , gets the most out of primers.
Which brake? Hoping it’s not the one I wanted to useLittle testing info, we have been shooting different kinds of 338lm factory and brass mfg reloads lately testing everything we can think of before roll out.
Won’t throw a MFG under the bus but one factory Ammo is out of spec OAL.
Need to get on the phone with them on Monday and see what’s up.
As well as one muzz brake couldn’t take the pounding.
Things you think wouldn’t happen always happen.
We want all this vetted out before you guys get your hands on them or start asking recommendations for other gear or accessories.
Any update on deliveries?
Not being a smart ass at all. It’s always a matter of trade off, do you run a lighter bullet faster or heavy bullet slower with higher BC and catch up (velocity)to the lighter bullet down range. The 215’s seem to be a sweet spot with the 300norma, but the bc with the 208’s looks good.Not being a smartass here. I’m sure they will run well like Berger always do.
For the newer LRHT bullets, their BC is pretty close to reality. So, just input the expected speed and you have a very close estimate.
From what I’ve seen and played with so far…regular pressures with quality match bullets, speed doesn’t make up the difference.Not being a smart ass at all.
