I agree with tony you could use the foil from wine bottles or lead foil (from a model shop) but this will only get you the belt and not the individual bullets. You could stick short lengths of fine wire to the foils strip to simulate them but they won't be tapered. You could use short lengths of stretch sprue - here you would be able to get the bullet points but would be incredibly tedious! Moulding something like this (say in resin) would be virtually impossible due to it's very fragile nature so I'd kind of rule that out. If you want a belt ready made there's a belt in the Dragon's HG division Anzio. Here's my effort of the relevant figure. When you use these belts carefully remove from the sprue and then gently heat it (with a hairdryer) so that you can bend it round the figure then finally glue in place.
Hope this helps and best of luck with it!
available here) is very easy to work with and although not practicle to make pointy ended, with good finishing, it would look OK. There are photo etch belt feeds for mounted machine guns that are pointy, to a degree, but are totally flat but still look good if painted right.
might work, i havent tried it but it might work, you never know, unless you've done it and you know it will fail
