I just bought a Benelli Supernova 18" tactical for home defense and was wondering if I could use it for occasional deer hunting with accuracy?

What do you plan on using buckshot or slugs and at want distance? yes you could hunt deer with that but answer the above.

Keep in mind the shorter bbl length will limited you on sight radius and payload velocity

I plan on using rifeled slugs at about 50- 100 yards. How far will this shoot accurately?

Most of the rifled barrels are shorter 18-20 inches, accuracy should be average. It wouldn't stop me from using it. But better shoot a few through it and get some on paper beforehand.

No way for me to say how far you can shoot your gun accurately.

You need to go out and try it.

I personally think 100 yards is a pretty long shot for a smooth bore 12 ga with rifle sights. Matter of fact I passed up about a 75-80 yard shot on a doe this evening with my Remington 870 smooth bore 20" rifle sighted slug barrel.

I shoot a cantilever 20" hasting bbl with sabots and make 3" groups off bag with scope at 4x.

Accuracy is all in the gun and ammo and shooter. Go to the range and shoot it ;)

Then you will know your accuracy.

Mine shoot about a 2" group at 100 yards with turkey sights. But then the barrell is 28" long too.

You definately need to get it out and shoot some paper first. IC choke works best for me.
