This is pretty much exactly what I did with mine, except I used a nail.
I later cut the bottom of the nose cone off, drilled into that epoxy slug and epoxied a threaded rod into it that runs the length of the nose cone. I then created a new bulkhead for the bottom of the nose cone that is locked into position with nuts onto the threaded rod. That way I can remove the bulkhead and slide weight (washers or whatever) onto the rod and adjust the weight.
