These are long narrow bits, they are gonna flex and touch the inside of the chisel. There’s nothing you can do to stop that. Getting the bit set at just the right depth thru the chisel is a bit of a trick. If the head of the drill bit is too far in, you will get binding and the chips will not clear. Too far out and the bit is allowed to flex too much. The end of the chisel is what keeps the bit centered.
