Stop That Bullet

Shawn the sharpshooter was practicing his shooting by firing at wooden blocks several meters away.

If the bullet (point mass) loses half of its velocity (due to friction) upon penetrating 3.0 cm in a wooden block, then how much further (in cm) will it penetrate before coming to rest ?
