Here's the thing about shotguns. They have massive amounts of energy at the muzzel, but they drop off really quick. At 100 yards, if you use a top quality slug, you've got 60% of the energy you did at the muzzel. If you use standard slugs, it's closer to 50%. To put that in perspective, you've got the muzzel energy of a .308 at 0 yards, and the muzzel energy of a .223 at 100 yards.
If you want to go long range, get a rifle. You want a big gun? .45-70 or a .30-06 are some big cartridges. .308 is pretty solid too.
