    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.

    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.

    Wow. Those are some impressive numbers they show, but I don't think I've ever been mad enough at a turkey to spend $10 a shot at them!

    I use an Undertaker in my 870 for buckshot mostly, and heavy loads of birdshot. It does show a preference for buffered or copper plated shot, but I have been impressed as cheap as it is that it does so well.

    Yea they are high but with a Rhino choke they perform better than the numbers Ray gives on his sight its like shooting little tight holes with a rifle a shotgun can perform also
