If you are drilling out a stripped headed screw a drill bit with left handed threads works great. Often the bit will hang up and back the screw right out. If you drill a small pilot hole dead center and then follow with a larger bit this is the most likely outcome. Left handed twist bits are available from good hardware stores.
