It's hard to really answer due to the fact that different gun manufactures have different bore diameters which makes a choke diameter different for each. Example is the benelli bore is .723 which is MUCH smaller then say a mossberg or invector barrel. Benellis usually like a tighter exit diameter in the 650-660 range where you definitely don't want to use that diameter in a mossberg.

Hopefully that makes sense. As a general term I'd say 665 is average among most guns but that doesn't say what your gun will like. She'll choice also will come into play
