Default Stripped Bleeder Screw hole, 4 piston 300zx caliper

So i changed out my pads yesterday and its been a while so when i went to go back the bleeder screw out it gave me a little trouble, I bleed the brakes and when i went to go seal it back up the bleeder just kept going and it stripped the hole in the caliper. Has anyone had this happen and what would you suggest, is it possible to retap the caliper or even make it a bigger bleeder due to the size of the caliper?

Are you sure it's not the bleeder that's stripped? I don't know what the thread size is, but I would probably feel good about a helicoil (as long as it's normal thread pitch)
