Cutting holes in thick uPVC pipe caps

That is thick plastic.
My 2 cents ...
Lots of drill holes drilled close together in a circle.
Drill a large hole for a hacksw blade then re-assemble blade into
hacksaw while located in hole drilled in cap.
Fret saw similar to above.
borrow a hydraulic hole punch, these are great fun
Sharpen a socket with angle grinder/bench grinder then use as a punch
with the aid of a vice and a larger socket. I have often used the
vice with home made punches to press thru thick material. Have often
used stanley blades to cleanly knife thru thick material with the aid
of a vice.
Chisel and hammer. Might fracture the plastic.
