I just bought a Remington Versa Max Sportsman from Dick's Sporting Goods and it only came with one choke for the gun. I was slightly disappointed by that but it came with a modified so I was content for a little while. My question is, do I need the PRO-BORE Chokes, or will any Remington choke do just fine? I have chokes from my 870 Super Mag Waterfowl that i could use, but I didn't know if i should use them. Any help would be appreciated!!

And the marking on the choke tubes are completely different number than what the actual choke diameter is.... I truly hate how they messed up with the probore....... plus stock chokes pattern horrible

The ProBore barrels have some choke in the barrel and the tube adds to that. You do not truly KNOW what you have with any choke set up until you pattern it with your loads.
I have to say that I have been able to get as good a pattern results with RemChokes as with anything else, and I have shot a hell of a lot of patterns.

Many of you may already know but I just found out TuJays passed a while back. He will be missed as he was a nice man with a lot of hands on knowledge and helped Remington make needed changes to the Versa Max
