Default Turkey Choke

Hi i just got a new remington 870 and i was wondering if anyone could tell me a good choke to use for it. i dont really have time to go to a range and test different chokes. so if anyone could tell me if they have this gun and what choke they use.

Kick's Gobblin' Thunder choke tube in .665 will do the trick with #5 shot!

Remington's factory super full turkey choke shot pretty good out of both my Remington!!! I don't think you can go wrongwith that choke and a box of Winchester HV #5's

You'll get 15 different response for sure,and may be more confused than when you started.Most any of todays turkey chokes will work just fine.You will have to spend a little time,and more importantly some money on different shells,figuring out which load your gun likes with your choke,and determining your effective range.What works on 1 gun may not work with another.Personally I have shot my 870 super mag with several different chokes.The star dot shot better than a kicks,undertaker,mad max,or factory turkey choke in my gun.All but the factory choke were very effective past 40yds.My gun likes 3.5"Winchester HV #4's.Hope I helped.

The Remington Turkey Super Full tube is a .665 tube.Remington recomends a .675 tube for hevi-Shot but I shot 3 1/2 " #6 hevi-shot through it real well last year but 3" #5s shot just as well out of my wifes 870 using an undertaker .665 tube.
This year I will probably try the new Federal 3" with the flight control wad.They recommend a .665 to .675 tube

The factory turkey choke done really well in my 11-87.

I don't use it for turkey hunting much. I almost always use my BPS and I have a COMP-N-CHOKE XXX Full on it. I shoot 3.5'' Winchester XX 2 1/4oz #6's.

I just bought a NEW 10ga. and I will be buying a COMP-N-CHOKE for it.
