I currently shoot a 870 SP with 23" bbl. I use an Indian Creek .665 choke with 3.5" Nitros and/or 3.5" MagBlends and its poison on the turkeys. I shot a Kick's GT .670 choke for years with 3.5" Winchester High Velocity #4s and was very pleased with that combo as well. If yours is a Wingmaster, you'll be shooting 3" shells, correct?

For 3" shells I would go with .655 1 3/4oz load. Winchester HV 5or6 should work nicely..

I'm starting to think I'm the crazy one REN. I had my forcing cone lengthened, keep my barrel deep cleaned, shoot 3.5 inch Hevishot 6's through a Jellyhead choke, and I've never considered pattern shooting mine past 50 yards. After reading the stuff on here, my gun should be deadly to 90 yards!
