The cartridge shouldn't be blown apart, it stays whole and is ejected out the right side of the gun. If you look at the 'bullet,' the actual bullet is the tip.

Here's a picture:

ok, well I dont even know the difference, but if you look around the gun you will see the cartridge being blown (four parts exiting around the gun).
If you apply a texture map of something gold to the bullet, it will keep its gold color.

I actually knew that, though I do think the bullet looks cooler in its case than out. Meh.

I reviewed the bullet being fired and the casing should be blown like that, but as you said only the tip should remain, but it does look cooler with the whole thing.
I just searched google sketchup for a bullet with trail, so thats the model I got.
I will try the texture thing, sounds like a good idea.

I know that. But the whole bullet looks better

Yeah I was converting some models yesterday and I found that when they're low poly they can look...well...low poly. So I played around with the color schemes and found that changing those two colors makes it look considerably better. The downside is that it can be slightly darkened and is much less responsive to light. So it's not a perfect technique, but it's definitely useful.

Here's an example of what it looks like when changed:
