Ha! We must be somewhat on the same page!
I also have a Weatherby autoloader, except mine is in 20 gauge, and has become my dedicated turkey gun (at least when lots of walking is involved). I'm just using the Weatherby factory extra-full turkey choke, coupled with Federal Heavyweight #7 loads, and it is a very effective turkey gun out to 45 yards. (With that particular load, more credit to the load than the choke, it's a more effective turkey gun than most of the 12 gauges I've used over the past decades.)

I have a Mossberg 935 that I use when I'm hunting in the elements or around water.

I do have to say that I really LOVE my Weatherby though. It shoots extremely well. After more than 1,000 rounds, it has never had a single hiccup.

I also have a 12 ga. Mossberg 935 dedicated turkey gun. I went with Mossberg because (even though there are better quality guns) their 935 series guns consistently produce the best patterns with turkey loads. Mossberg builds the 935 series 12 ga barrels as a 10 ga barrel "chambered" for 12 ga shells. This results in less pellet deformation, more uniform patterns.

But with a lightweight 20 ga now that's a terrific turkey gun, the Mossberg has taken the back seat. I put a Burris Fastfire sight on the 20 ga., and have been very pleased with both that sight and the Weatherby 20 ga.

I know the question was "which choke", but just as important may be "which shells".

which choke is a good question but in reality which ammo is where you should start as certain chokes are great with certain ammo. If you going to shoot lead thats fine but some chokes shoot 6 shot great but 4 or 5 shot poorly etc....Some chokes shoot Hevi Shot lights out but not very good with cheap lead shells.

IMO shoot good ammo and the choke is a bit easier to find.
