500 S&W vs. 45-70 in a rifle

Not long range but wanted some advice. Has anyone seen the 500 chambered in a rifle with say a 20' or 22' bbl. Wondering what kind of velocity one could get with the long bbl. How do you think it would compare to the 45-70 with the same length bbl. Pros and cons of either from a Ballistic standpoint? Could be an interesting cartridge in a rifle for the brush. What do you guy’s thing?

I have seen the 500 in the new england fire arms. As for ballistics I have no clue. This may be a dumb question but what does bbl mean? Thanks

Not a dumb question. How else is one to learn if they don't ask? It mean barrel.
