I use a Winchester 1300 with a Hastings 665 choke, federal 3" 2oz #4 shot, topped with a truglo gobble stopper red dot...deadly out to at least 60 yards

as far as shells and choke there are numerous possibilities it all depends on how much you want to spend.....give us an idea on how much you want to spend on shells and a choke tube

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Trusty old Remington 870 Express 12ga with Winchester DoubleX Turkey shot - its #4 shot in 2/3/4" shell
This was taken at 30 yards

That is an Osceola, Florida bird. Not as big as an Eastern, but usually has some good hooks.

Speaking of laws, check your state regulations. Many areas prohibit shot larger than #4.
