I'm afraid your plan is doomed to fail. The force-field seems to entirely prevent solid matter from passing through it, regardless of velocity.
From the original script, David places the can, then (and only then) is the force-field is turned on by a nearby technician:
Grabbing a coke can from the "recycle" trash bin, David places the
empty can on top of the alien attacker. David turns and faces the
DAVID: Could anyone please step back away from the craft?
They do and David nods to a Technician inside the craft. The
Technician disappears inside, closing the door behind him. A loud HUM
emits from the craft. David has to yell over it.
The same scene appears in the film's official novelisation
David reached into a trash receptacle and fished out a soda can.
“We’ll just recycle this guy,” he said to himself, trotting back to
the attacker and reaching up to set the can on the tip of the wing.
When he returned to the observation platform, he waved a signal to the
technician sitting behind the windows of the attacker. The man hit a
switch, then gave David a thumbs up.
For the record, in all versions the bullet ends up ricocheting off the shield and hitting the metal catwalk above. Its final resting place is unknown.
As pizzaholic81 has mentioned, the Harvester ship seen in Independence Day: Resurgence ploughs straight through a massive debris field. Solid objects simply bounce off it.
