There's a fairly decent set of HV presets available which also served as nice examples. The name is "HV-Pro" from tutorfx.com (http://www.tutorfx.com/HPR.htm). Fairly inexpensive, and digging into the presets and provided examples was enlightening about how HV settings worked, etc.

There hasn´t been any late release of particle tutorials for ages I think, maybe check liberty 3d.
same goes for hypervoxels.

And do not expect particle/bullet intergration..they need to work out the old or a new particle system to make the best of it yet, some workarounds but it´s an old system in conjunction with a new system.

for valid videotutorials about hypervoxels and particles though old ..yet still pretty much valid..check
desktop images, not sure if they still are available.

There´s also dynamics and detail from desktop images, wich is also available free from Greg Sullivan..(thank you)

They are Free...but make sure you like his video and give thanks comments...
Dynamics and detail...

also check www.liberty.com, cant find particle sections in there though, not sure if it was up or located somewhere else now?

Then you have videos from asile fx..do not now much about them though...

Kurv studios had some with Tim Dunn (aurora) do not know if he host´s them somewhere though?
kurv studios also had exposions smoke and fire with some ship destructions from Sean Scott,

same here do not know if they are on for sale somewhere, kurv studios vanished...it seems.

Also check all particle threads and tips from Mr Rid, and depending on what you want with particles and hypervoxels?
I could share a tip or two.
I do share some descriptions of experimental fiddlings on my vimeo page, but just simple tests and descriptions..no full projects nor sound narration.

For bullet...check lightwave´s own pages on youtube and others.

These look very interesting! I noticed they call out LW 8.3 as a requirement for some presets; I presume that's a minimum and these are still okay with 11.5.1?

Unfortunate you can't purchase anything from these guys. They have an issue with PayPal.
