Should I use the Benelli modified choke or is there a better choke? what shot size of hevi shot with the setup?

I used Hevi #5 in the full choke for turkey this year. It worked very good and I think you could cover a duck quit nicely at well over 50 yd. Full at 40 takes out a turkey very effectively. I tested some hevi this year after the season when I got my M2 with the crio barrel and chokes. It shoot heavy very good as does my Xtrema. I don't see much need for more than mod most of the time. My #6 duck loads are great to 35 or 40 yd with the IC. Skeet is actually not bad for most decoy work. Mod should do most of what you need for pass shooting. I plan to try some IM patterns soon to see what that does with the #4 for longer range.
More ammo! I need to shoot something!

I/C actually patterns a little tight for anything under 40 for me. i use 6's and there is a heck of a lot of shot in 1 1/8oz of that stuff.
