If a bullet is shot into a suspended mass and does not pass through why can you not just use conservation of energy?

Energy will be lost due to the plastic deformation of the mass as the bullet enters the mass. However momentum will always be conserved, so you can use this to find the speed of the mass when the bullet enters.
