I just purchased the same gun and had the same question so I called the customer service line (800-264-4962). They refer to the chokes as "short" and "long range" turkey chokes. According to them the short range (XFull) is .593 and the long range (XXFull) is .565
I haven't unboxed the gun yet but can't wait to spend some time with it. Have you selected a load yet? I have read of some choke/load combo's on this board that seem pretty consistent for the Affinity3 shooting TSS and heavy shot, but not too much about the lead loads.

I'm going to be shooting Foxtrot 3" #9s but I'm going to try a Carlson's .575. I shoot the same combo out of my 11-87 with great confidence.
