A Winchoke is a screw in choking device that screws into the end of a Winchester Shotgun. Commonly called a screw in choke, most manufacturers have a different name for their chokes that they made specifically for their products. Screw in chokes eliminate the need for extra barrels with different chokes built in. The screw in choke allows the shooter to change from open chokes to a full choke depending on how wide they want the shot pattern to spread. Winchester makes the Winchoke, Remington makes the Remchoke, Browning makes the Invector choke and so on.
Is it a screw in choke?
Slugs and shot are simply the contents of the packaged shotshells. Any shotshell can be filled with shot of various sizes, including 00 buck or with slugs and any shotgun (single shot; pump, double or automatic) that will chamber that shell can shoot those loadings. One caution is that slugs and buckshot should not be used in shotguns fitted with full chokes. Modified chokes and improved cylinders are probably OK, and full chokes can be used with birdshot (smaller pellets).
To change the choke of the shot
How much the shot is constricted as it leaves the barrel.
As the name "buck" shot implies, it is intended for use on large animals, such as deer. In much of the Southern US, only shotguns are used for deer hunting, and are loaded with buckshot.
You will need to shoot both chokes with as many different kinds of ammuntion as you can afford at the range you intend to shoot. Your shotgun will show a preference for at least one load.
If it was made to shoot steel shot and has interchangeable chokes.
"The buck stops here." "He shot the seven point buck." "He asked to borrow a buck."

Yes chokes are designed to tighten shot patterns.

Modified or full. If using full let them get out a bit. Mod usually never leaves my pump. My over under has mod for the first shot and full for the second
