Buy a decent set of high speed steel (HSS) twist drills. Don't worry about getting a set with a low friction titanium nitride (TiN) coating; you probably won't need it unless you're drilling a large number of holes, and a TiN coating doesn't guarantee that the drills themselves are of a good quality. In my experience Dormer, Presto and CK are good makes. You can buy Dormer sets from

We just use Dormer jobber drills for 316 stainless, they key is to get the speed right , to fast and you will blunt them no matter what they are made from. A little cutting agent helps as well.
