Destin, I found it ! On my D7200; Menu > Custom Setting > d-Shooting/Display > d3-Max Continuous Release. Maximum number of shots when in Continuous mode CH or CL. From 1 (=single shot, which does not make sense) to 100. You should have something similar on your D500. If you want to shoot more than that max number, you have to release the shutter to reset, then press and fire another burst. I tested it, and it works But, you are in "burst" mode. You do not have the option of going "full auto." You have to press, release, press, release, ... The trick is to determine what the burst value should be. Default is 100 (the max). I think my usual burst is 3-6 shots in CH mode. But I have occasionally had the longer burst. So I don't want to restrict myself too much. I think that I can control my finger. It is not so cold, that I loose fine finger control. But I'm usually firing off ONE shot rather than a burst, in CH mode. Old film habits die hard.
