I'm hunting in NJ this year and I can only shoot slugs or use buck shot. Never done this before. I have a remington 870 express

    I used smooth bore slug guns for many years in Western New York. They will usually throw a rifled slug well enough to shoot deer out to about 100 yards when using either a cylinder bore (no choke) or an improved cylinder choke as long as the gun has either iron sights or a scope installed. Most of the guns I hunted with over the last 40 years would hold around a 2" group at 50 yards using ordinary Remington or Winchester rifled slugs which sell for around $3-$4 a 5 pack.
    Yep, no rifled barrel needed.

      My 870 is set up with a 20-inch barrel that has REM choke and rifle sights. With it I've killed deer and pigs but all shots have been 50 yards and closer. I use an Improved Cylinder Choke and Remington Slugger rounds, Forester-style.
