It shouldn"t matter to use screw-in chokes with buckshot. I prefer slugs, myself.

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.

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).

How much the shot is constricted as it leaves the barrel.
