BB works best for me and try improved cylinder or light modified. You HAVE to pattern your gun, I've seen quite a few guns shoot patchy patterns with modified choke and large steel. I don't skybust and haven't found the need for anything tighter than light modified. 95% of the time I use Imp/Cyl

Kent Fasteel 3" 1-1/4 oz. #1 patterned the best out of my 12 gauge 870. I also use a long range Carlson's steel shot extended choke tube. All I hunt is traffic and it does the job well. BB didn't pattern too good out of it and there are like 30 less pellets in BB compared to #1. I like having more pellets than having a less dense pattern. Pattern different loads and chokes if you can and use the one with the best pattern. Every gun shoots differently.
