That said, I did have an issue with one defective nipple that leaked at the saddle/PVC connection. I initially thought that perhaps my holes weren't accurate (especially since there are a bunch of reviews in which folks seemed to suggest needing really precise holes) but after switching a couple of nipples around, I found that the problem was with one perhaps slightly defective nipple and not the hole. When I contacted Coop Queen, they sent out a new one straightaway the next day - pretty awesome customer service.
In terms of the holes, I just started with a small bit(1/8") and drilled progressively larger pilot holes until I got to the required 5/16". I did use a bit for fiberglass on the final hole, which may be a little cleaner but I'm not sure if this is necessary. Outside of the problem with the single defective nipple, I had no problems with centering the holes or anything by hand.
One other nice thing that's worth mentioning - unlike the threaded screw in nipples, these are re-usable. The threaded nipples, if drilled into PVC, get worn down and cannot be used again. These saddle style nipples can be popped out and re-inserted in case you want to reconfigure your watering system.
Overall, great product and great customer service from Coop Queen.
