Really depends on what you're planning on shooting. Game and loads.

The best value I've found in a turkey choke is the Primos Tightwad in a .570 choke for a 20 gauge or a 660 in 12 gauge. Shoot great and not expensive.

i have been looking at that one as well at the jellyhead. I have been told by people that you have to spend a bunch of money on a choke tube for it to be a good one.

Re: choke tube for remington 870

That's not true if you're talking about a choke for turkey that you're not going to shoot a whole lot. Those tightwads pattern as good as the expensive chokes, same dimentions, just not hardly as good metal. If you were duck hunting or pheasant hunting and shooting a ton you'd need the better choke, but not for turkey.

That's from Primos, I called and asked the difference between the jelly head and tight wad, It was only the metal. Mine pattern great.

I use a Kicks Gobblin Thunder 665 in my 870. I have a friend that swears by the Jeb's Choke. It's supposed to be the best, but it is expensive and really likes Heavi-Shot.
