Yes, drill through. A shallow, blind hole that goes nowhere would do nothing.

If the oil pump and the rest of the system is in good working condition, including the correct oil viscosity choice, then the small hole won't have a significant negative effect on either pressure or flow rate. But the hole will help to shorten the time required to build oil pressure during engine start-up.
