Take a punch and punch dead center. Get a good drillbolt like a cobalt and use lubrication and go slow. The bolt is very hard and it took me about 2 hours of drilling but I was able to get an extractor in and turn it out. Make sure your hole is as close to center as possible and do not break the extractor off inside the bolt because you will have a problem. Also breaking a drillbit off inside a bolt means your screwed so go slow. They also sell left handed drillbits which would try to turn the bolt out while drilling.
I just had this problem and the bolt broke off into the recess where the dowel pins fit so this was my only option.
