Default Screwed up my Mash Tun

Hey guys I could use some help. I traded a keggle for rubber coated keg that I planned to use as my mash tun. When I went to drill the pilot hole I realized I was a little low so I moved my bit just a bit higher thinking that it would round out into the initial pilot hole. Now I have a hole that has a extra little taken out of the bottom, can you help. I would post a picture but I am not sure how. If I figure it out I will post a picture.

JB welt to patch it then reshape the hole. No welding required. Or if it's through rubber, use hightemp silcone.

Depending on how much extra opening you created it might be simpler to buy a larger silicone o-ring and SS washer to cover the over sized hole.
