    I use the remington super full choke with remington 3 1/2 inch shells, size 5 shot. Every gun patterns differently however, when i used this choke/shot combo, i was putting 15 plus pellets in a 7 inch circle at 60 yards. Either way pick what best suits you and make sure that you are comfortable with it because that is what is going to kill that big ol tom.

    I use an Undertaker full turkey choke and Federal Premium Magnum Turkey shells with #6 copper plated in 3 inch 12 gauge. I use them in both my Remington 870 and 11-87.

    I don't have that gun, but even in the same make and model, some guns will pattern differently from others. Choose any reputable turkey choke---Carlson, Truglo, etc. and find which load patterns best. I'd start with Hevi Shot or some other high density shot. Sorry I can't give you exact info, but you have to find out what works best for your particular gun.
