Default 12 ga. choke for tightest pattern with buckshot

Hey, I'm looking for a new choke and am not sure what all is out there.
I want the tightest pattern possible for buckshot.
I know a while back Pattern Master had one available for law enforcement that shot an 8"(maybe 10") group at either 25 or 40 yards (I'm pretty sure it was 40). But I can't seem to even find the choke or the patten sizes for any of there chokes on there site, unless I was on the wrong section.
What else is out there, I'm sure there are better ones. I'm just referring to them because thats the best I found when I was researching, but that was a while back.
(I have a 12ga. remington 870)

Thanks, Francis

the only two I hear of using are modified and imp cyl. You don't want too much constriction on a load of buck shot because it will defore to many of the pelets and that causes your pattern to spread even worse.

The newer "low or reduced recoil" ammo will pattern better than full power loads. I have seen remarkable results from such loads and an IC choke.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

There's many choices out there, but I'll have to agree for standard usage
go with a IC or Mod choke tube for that Remmy of yours.
