Cutting 3/16 metal

Is there a hole saw that will cut a 2 3/8in hole in 3/16 metal.Not sure if a hole saw will cut it,no pun intended.

A quality brand name hole saw will do it...key is not to overheat and loose the temper of the teeth...slow and lotza oil....I used a hole saw for 1 inch pins in 5/8 inch thick plow frame like butter.
