    I use the HSS bits, set the drill speed to slow and press hard. A high speed setting will burn the drill bits.

    any quality bit should be fine, but slow speed, lots of pressure and cutting oil

    If it's hard enough you might have to go to a carbide drill bit. I recall having to use them to tap some gun actions.
