The mount for the aperture is 7/32” (0.218”), the diameter of the aperture shank.

0.05" is not too small for a peep sight aperture. 0.1" could be a bit too big, although it let more light through.

You can try eBay. There used to be a guy making discs for different peep sights. Price is quite reasonable. There you can specify the hole size. Another option is to 3D print a bunch of disc "blanks" and drill the hole yourself. Certainly you can consider drilling the hole in the existing disc bigger. A set of numbered drill bits offers several steps between 0.05" to 0.1".
