If you trade during RTH only and excluding news times, you will not have any problems regarding slippage / non-fills.

Around news slippage naturally can be fairly large. How large? That depends on the DOM that still
exists at the time of your (intended) trade. So it would be rather naive to expect e.g. normal GC fills
around non-farm payrolls.
