Well, you could google for a bullet picture and then animate it on visionlab. For example:
http://www.bulletforge.com/images/silver_bullets/40_sw_hp_silver_bullet.jpg
or
http://www.restlessadventurer.net/guns/bullets/bullet_banner.jpg

What I would do is turn the picture sideways so the bullet is horizontal, then get rid of the background and animate it to grow bigger and to the left or right (that is of course, if the bullet is coming toward the camera).

I would not recomend using pictures. I do however recomend using 3d. You have full control 360. Just my thoughts.

Go to the AlamDV Plug-insdpwnloads and search for "bullet". There's a bunch of renders of bullets from various angles that you could use.
