Rendering

Place many bullets in your scene. Add a Camera and a Vray plane (Create > Geometry > Vray) beneath the bullets. Give it a grey material (RGB 128, 128, 128).

Open the Rendering tab (F10), assign Vray as the renderer and change the following variables: (Fig.33 & 34)

Open the Material Editor. Choose an empty slot and add Vray HDRI map into the diffuse slot. Click on browse and choose the good old Kitchen.hdr (you can download it here: http://www.debevec.org/Probes/kitchen_probe.hdr). Change the map type to Spherical environment and drag Instance into the Reflection/Refraction slot in the Vray: Environment sub-menu.(Fig.35 & 36)
