On the range, Federal Premium 130-grain Terminal Ascent shattered the Carbon Rogue’s 0.750-inch accuracy guarantee with a one-hole 0.210 group. That’s simply outstanding performance from any ammo, let alone a hunting round. The overall average grouping for factory ammo was 0.702, with 0.764 for handloads and 0.838 for factory match.
As for my recommended hunting loads for the Carbon Rogue, Federal Terminal Ascent 130-grain would top my list for medium-sized game because of its outstanding accuracy and downrange performance. It’s followed closely by a Nosler AccuBond 140-grain bullet handloaded with Reloder 22 powder. As for larger game, both Nosler Trophy Grade 142-grain AccuBond Long Range and Hornady Precision Hunter 143 grain ELD-X provided excellent sub-0.75 accuracy, with plenty of long-range potential.
