If doing it freehand you need to find the center and hit it with a center punch so your bit does not drift and mess up your stock. Then a small square is usefull in getting the bit straight with the stock when drilling it out. I never use glue on them as I may want to change it or replace it if it rust. I tighten them with a drift punch or allen wrench thru the hole to avoid marking up the outside. The torx wrench that comes with Leupold rings is the perfect size. Use a small drill first as a guide hole and then step up to the proper size for the stud.
