best choke for less than $50( turkey)

Buying a Remington 870 youth 20ga for turkey hunting and was wondering the best choke for the money under $50? Considering it is a 20 I guess I need the tightest restriction to make sure enough shot go into the kill zone out to about 40 yards.

If an extra full came with the gun, that would surfice, and xxfull even better. Take what you got and hit the range to check what type of pattern it's shooting would be my course of action.

1+...I've used 3" #5's with great success...One shot at 7, (about decapitated) and 1 at 31yds. This was with a plain full choke. #5's pack a punch, and they will give you a nice, dense pattern for a 20 ga.

You'll have to hit the range with a pattern board and check things out in person, but I've had really good results from HS Strut's "Undertaker" turkey chokes. I've only used them in 12 ga though.

I think I paid about 20 bucks each for them. I have one for a rem 870 and one for a Mossberg 835.

I second the undertaker, I get great results with Hevi-shot out of my 870 with it.

The Remington extended Extra Full choke is as a good as any, at least for my 870 it patterns very well. I also own a Undertaker, which I can't tell a difference.
