Make a little mark, preferably an x, with a knife in the centre of the barrel and then start drilling from there. Works good enough in my world at least

On plastic I make an indent with a cross point screw driver and then drill away. Also it depends what type of drill your using, manual or a variable speed sutopmatic hobby drill are best - a full on DIY drill won't work particularly well.
