Since switching to these brass bulkheads, which attach much more solidly and are unbreakable, I haven't had a problem. The existing holes were still in good shape.
Note that to install these all you have to do is drill a hole using a step bit in the barrel. If you use a step bit, you can get the hole to exactly the right diameter. Then just slip the male part of the fitting through the hole from the inside and attach the locking nut on the outside. You'll have to hold the nut inside the barrel, which takes some reaching! Then screw on your female-threaded hole bib or other fitting and you're all set.
One final note: the male fitting you'll need to go into this from the outside is 1"
And this hose bib:
Kind of tricky to get the nut which is inside the barrel screwed into the male part. I used some double stick tape on a yard stick but I'm sure there has to be a better solution. I put the gasket on the outside and it works fine.
