If you practice, that is a good range for that gun. You should be able to hit fairly well there. Practice is where it's at though. Then you can extend that range a bit.

I currently use a Remmington Model 110 Magnum (when not using my rifle) and have had no problems with it at all. But, then again I can shoot 3 inch slugs if I prefer to. What I did notice though was if I shook the slugs and they rattled any they were no use to me. They should be tight with no rattling in order to get the best performance out of them. I hope that helps you. Or you could get a slug barrel with sights on it which will also help you out a lot.

I bought one new in 1976, still use it...It has a 21 inch Improved Cylinder barrel with rifle sights on it...Using the Remington Sluggers, it will shoot inside 3 inches at 75 yards, which is as good as I can see...

I've killed a ton of deer with it, it's a great gun...

Same here, the sluggers work great.

I have killed many a deer at over 100+ yds with a 1100, a slug barrel with a 2-4x scope would even do better.

Do you ever take the gun apart to clean it? If so them you have done more work than changing the barrel already. The 1100 just like any gun needs to be taken down from time to time for a good cleaning as well as an oiling. Anyways all you have to do is take the nut off the forearm and then the forearm. The barrel comes right out after the forearm is off from it.

Phil from Maine is making a very good point! What I think that he is driving at is in addition to "normal" dirtying up a hunting gun as the result of field use, the action of a gas operated autoloading long gun fouls pretty quickly. The fine powder residue in the gas builds up in the action + the heat of these gases can cause residues to build up resulting in poor cycling amd/or out right jamming and/or a damaged extractor.

To stay in tip-top cycling condition, after firing several rounds (and in my opinion before storage after a hunting season, regardless of how many rounds are fired) the action needs a good cleaning. This requires what might be described as a "semi-break down" of the fire arm so that you can get to the filth.

As for changing out the barrel ... on the Mod. 1100 ... takes ... what ... maybe 30 seconds ?
