Default soldering coax

I'm making some digital coax cables out of some belden rg6 and some quality rca plugs.

Do you normally solder the shield to the rca plug like you do for normal cable? because it looks like the belden cable has alloy shield which is near impossable to solder.

whats the best way to do this?
