It depends on which wad wizard it is. There is a close range one and one for longer distances. You should pattern both chokes at the distance you want. Then pick the pattern you like better.

I go about once a year to a dog deer hunt and I used to use Federal 3" 20 ga #2 buckshot in a Win. 1300 and a full choke.
But this year I will be using my browning bps and a Comp-n-Choke ported full choke and 3 1/2" 00 buck.
It is ok to shoot it through an extra full. I have many buddies that deer hunt with buckshot as well and some of them have had better patterns with full and even modified chokes, seems as if the big pellets don't constirct that much. But they dont have backbored barrels like I do and thats why a more open choke patterns better.
