I have a Rem 11-87 and have used it the past 20 yrs. I have a similar set-up as I use a Hasting Choke 0.665 and I use 3 inch Winchester Supreme #4 Copper Plated. I see no reaso to change to any other type shot as this has performed for me flawlessly - is far cheaper than Hevi shot and the other brands.
My set-up also includes a Nikon Monarch turkey Pro Scope and this gun is a 55 yarder if needed.
But I am proud to say with all the birds I have taken - my average is still 21 yards........some far closer and a few beyond that but I try to get them in close - so close so I can see the fuzz on their head.
