For bucked rivets I use a tool,sometimes called a vix bit, that is designed to be a self centering bit for pre drilling hinge screws. It has a ferral that will seat on the rivet to self center. You have to visualize the perpenticular axis. For pop rivets I just use an 1/8" bit.
Either way once you get through the head you can just knock them out with a punch.
