YES OF COURSE. Batman SHOOT Superman in the Alex Ross Mithology hardcover boox (a 6 or 8 pages history) Batmnan say: I Just have seconds.." when he put out the bullet for don't kiil Superman (Superman was mind controller by Brainiac)
Kryptonite robs Superman of his powers almost immediately upon exposure, and begins to poison him. If he remains too close to it for too long, he'll die.
Now, bullets are not necessarily instantly fatal. Small-caliber bullets in particular can lodge in the flesh without actually causing all that much damage, although it ain't fun. Generally, for a bullet to kill, one of two things got to happen:
1. Bullet strikes a vital organ -- brain, heart, major nerve cluster, liver, etc.
2. Bullet is big enough to cause major hydrostatic shock upon impact, disrupting ALL the internal organs, resulting in shock and quick death. This can also happen with a small-caliber bullet designed to "tumble" in flight.
So, if Superman suffered a flesh wound with a Kryptonite bullet, he wouldn't necessarily die right away. He'd suffer Kryptonite poisoning, and would die if the bullet remained lodged in him long enough, sure. Of course, they've never let us know exactly how long this would take in the comics.
...but any competent doctor could probe and remove the bullet fairly easily under most circumstances, and Superman would likely make a full recovery. Probably pretty quickly, too. If you don't kill Superman right quickly, you ain't gonna kill him at all, folks. True since 1938!
You got class, podnuh. What the hell you need with notoriety?
Green K is shorthand for green Kryptonite. Back before the crisis, there were many forms of Kryptonite. It took on it's color by passing through different clouds of gas it space.
Green Kryptonite is the one everyone is familiar with, Red Kryptonite always caused unpredictable changes that lasted 24 (or 48, I forget) hours, so he might lose his memory, or grow wings, or shrink to ant size, or his head might grow to enormous size, or whatever you can imagine. Blue Kryptonite was to Bizarro what Green Kryptonite was to Superman. Gold Kryptonite took away Superman's powers permanently. I believe white Kryptonite affected Kryptonian plant life?
And there were other varieties as well.
Bad thing about Kryptonite is, it was supposed to be extremely rare. Maybe a handful of small meteors over the entire planet. (Would make sense since Krypton was so far away. Why would a sizeable amount of its rubble after and explosion end up here on Earth?). But everyone wants their heroes to always be in life or death situations so they started writing it into every other story.
Post-Crisis, the only Kryptonite was green, and only a small piece of it came to Earth, embedded in the rear of Kal-El's space capsule. That chunk of Kryptonite is what Lex Luthor fashioned his ring from.

Kryptonite bullets were introduced long ago (possibly even earlier in a comic?) on the old black and white syndicated Superman TV show.
Some crooks had a scientist who had some Kryptonite and suspected it could harm Superman. So, they set up a trap with a machine gun and had 1 kryptonite bullet among the other bullets, and when Superman ripped off the door to a room thinking he was rescuing someone in trouble, the gun fired. Superman laughed that they would try such a dumb looking trap, but then he grimaced and grabbed his shoulder.
A crook went to the site after Superman flew off and found all the smashed bullets but one bullet was not smashed. (Apparently a machine gun did not fire the bullet hard enough to actually wound Superman). They had marked all the bullets and studied the film and it turned out the scientist was right and the bullet was the Kryptonite bullet.
So, they set a real trap and kidnapped Lois Lane and Jimmy Olson. The criminals had bragged to Lois and Jimmy that their bar of Kryptonite could kill Superman and when Superman showed up, they told him he was in danger and he laughed. Suddenly the bar of Kryptonite was dropped down into the room from a small trap door up above and it immediately caused Superman to crumble to the floor.
But Lois and Jimmy remembered that the Kryptonite had been shown to them in a lead box, and Superman realized the pipes below the sink were made of lead. Jimmy broke off a section of pipe and dropped the bar into it and stomped on the ends to seal it off. Superman recovered and threw the sealed pipe into the ocean.
The criminals were fleeing Superman when they lost control of their car and died in a fiery wreck going down the side of a mountain.
This was the first of a handful of Kryptonite episodes they made for that old show.
(this is how I remember the show so I might be off on some of the details, hopefully I am not mixing two different episodes together, but I believe it is mostly accurate...)
