You may want to consider installing bushings to prevent the wire’s insulation from potentially becoming damaged. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dw7cavIpgm4

Subject: RE: [WiringForDCC] Buss Wiring Through Metal Studs
There should be no real issues as long as you use twisted pairs for the DCC busses and feeders and always run the wire pairs through the same hole in the metallic studs.
I am building a new layout that will be raised and lowered by using a hoist system in my garage. To lower the weight of the benchwork I used metal studs. Can I drill holes in the metal studs and run the buss wires through the studs. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
