Does anyone have the measurements of where to drill for putting the screw through the receiver and into the barrel on a Remington 870? Also which screw would work best?

Thanks

Why do you want to do that? What problem are you trying to fix?

Before I drilled any holes in my 870's receiver and barrel, I'd surely try shimming it like this:

Rifled barrel receiver mounted peep. I think you see where I'm going with this...

I may do the coke can trick and pin the barrel.

You can always send it to Randy Fritz at Tarhunt, he'll give you a Shaw barrel and pin it, much more accurate

If you can find a local gunsmith to do it fairly cheaply, pinning can make a huge improvement in repeatable accuracy.

If it's going to be too much, I would consider buying a Savage 220.
