John Pedersen


Is it pronounced Pehderson or PEEterson?

He's been in the news, naturally. Sorta the famous second tier US gunsmith greats. I liked him before her was cool because of the esoteric stuff he came up with. I still wish his round had become the US Army standard in the late 20s. I still fantasize that essentially the same round would be standard today if that is happen, but i am kidding myself. The cartridge is too tapered and too long and the projectile is a bit heavy. And if you correct those to match modern preferences. Plus, what would people have hunted with if the .30-06 was last used by the Army 90 years ago?
