How to "fine" texture

Just wondering if you guys have any tips or techniques to texture small detailed objects such as these bullets.

Off topic but the bullet on the left has 60 sides for the circles and the right has the default 24. Plus the left bullet’s corners were rounded.

Hi Alex,
Yours looks great on the left and those extra sides make for a better job. I enclose a basic picture in projecting the texture so that the line appear to give a “machined turned finish” as a bullet would be made . I have also projected a basic bullet picture to give ideas. I have made the lines bigger so as to show up.
