Question Electron in a metal with uniform electric field

Dear G4 Experts,

I have a simple question: Setup: e- is shot in +z direction. We just have a world volume, material is metal, Fe for instance. I apply E-field in -z direction, to accelerate electrons in positive z direction. Physics List I use is QGSP_BERT(I believe it is irrelevant for this setup!!!)

The question is: Is there a way to simulate electron flow in that metal with electric field applied. e- are low energy electrons: say 10eV-1keV. I used E-field up to -200*vold/um and I still couldn't achieve electron transport in the metal. So, the question is if there is a way to achieve "current flow" so to speak and how???

This is a simplified setup for a larger simulation, where I need those low energy electrons to propogate in the metal under the influence of E-field...

Thanks a lot in advance!!!
