Default shotgun ammo ??

I would like to know what kind of shotgun ammo I should store for shtf. I have a Mossberg tactical turkey 835. I would like to stock up shells for hunting and SD. I live in Tennessee we have turkey, birds, duck, geese, rabitt, fox, racoons, etc. Help me decide what shells I need for bot hunting and SD. This shotgun does not shoot slugs and I have a IC, Modified, Full, and uni full turkey choke with it and it has a 20 in barrell. It is my only shotgun right now but I plan on adding a couple more. Thanks for any help.

I'd stock up on #6 or # 7 1/2, or whatever the steel equivalent is.

And 00 or 000 buck for serious social shooting.

A few low brass #8 trap loads wouldn't hurt either.

#4 shot and #0 (not #00) Buck will cover pretty much everything.

The choke that came with my 835 tac turkey says not to use steel my question is what shells should I shoot with this choke on the rifle if I were hunting turkey? The choke says uni full turkey and is ported.

It's a shotgun, right, not a rifle? And says not steel, so, I'd use lead with that choke.
