Remington 1187 SPT, one of my hunting buddies has one and we are having a hard time finding out what choke and shell combo works best. Can any of you help?

Every gun is different even other remingtons, but try a Kick's 665 and Winchester Supreme #5's.

I have a hasting .640 and primos tight wad .660 for sale for $40 dollars if he wants them to try.i tried them and a jelly head,rhino the factor xx full in mine.They all shot about the same.I kept the rhino because i am going to shoot the nitro loads.with 6 shot I can put 80 -100 lead pellets in the head and neck at 30 yards with all of them.every gun is different so you just have to try some chokes and loads to see what shoots best.

I would start with what the manufacturer recommends for the weapon. This info should be available with the manual for the gun or on the manufacturer's website...

I have had the best luck with factory full chokes in Remington guns. Like TurkeyBurd said the hevi shot is the real deal. 60+ rolled em
