I was skeptical until I conducted this test this morning....
Tungsten Super Shot BB's
That is wild! I worked with an Ironworker that claimed he had a reloaded round that would go 100 yards for Geese. I was skeptical until I heard another co-worker said when he saw it, he just put his shotgun down.
3.5" #4 Buckshot can reach out there, I shot one at close to a 100 yards
Here are some samples of good shotgun loads:

In more open country, the TSS would be awesome to say the least, choke choice will be critical determined by trial and error.
3 Ball (Tri-Ball) 60 caliber balls heat treated to BHN 28-30 (330 gr. each ball) 3" Mag. 12 gauge, 1200fps.
with the right choke will pattern at 14-18" at 100 yds. - Kills dear sized game with authority, yotes don't stand a chance.
- For Non-Lead shooters 1 5/8 oz. 3 1/2" Mag "T" heavy-shot load @ 1500 fps through an improved modified on an 870 super-mag bowls em over.
Dang boy, you don't play around do you?
Schooled by Mr. James Gates of the "Original Dixie Slugs" from Old Town, Florida.
He did a hell of a Tri-Ball load in 3 & 3 1/2" 12 Ga. also the Terminator, and Exterminator 12 Ga. Full-Bore heat treated 720 gr. (1 3/8 oz.) slugs. - I was Very Lucky to know him and also do some performance testing on his ammo. As well, I hold a few thousand rounds of his loads. - Everything James & Chrissy did was proof-tested before being sold and tested in the field and at the Linebaugh Seminar in Cody, WY.
This man brought shooting slugs and large caliber 3 ball loads to a whole new level. - Turned a 12 Ga. with a rifled barrel into a big bore short range bear stopper. - What impressed me was the 128 yard kill that was done in N. Carolina on deer. - Several were harvested at over 100 yards.
God Rest His sole, I heard he died a couple years ago. He worked for Winchester OLIN and then after Fiocchi in Italy. - I'm one of the Lucky ones, he shared his load recipes with me as well as what exact wads to use.
