try a half inch drill lip and spur is good and see if that helps.You need to make the hole bigger the dowel can’t be made smaller realistically easily so keep trying with a standard drill. Actually I never heard of anyone using a forstner for dowels although it’ should work fine what made you go down that route in the first place
