From what I've read, that's all Holywood. It's almost impossible to trace a bullet to a gun, but in VERY rare cases it can be done. Honestly, I don't know much on the subject, just what I have read.

To be able to trace a bullet to a gun you need three things....

1) The casing.
2) The gun must have some sort of a flaw that will mark the casing.
3) The gun and casing present together (which almost never happens)
