Here is the question I have. Let's say a person has a Smith & Wesson 500 magnum handgun(most powerful production handgun), and the gun is loaded with 350 gram bullets. If that person shoots another person, who is 20 feet away, does this person have a chance of surviving if hit? If so, what body part would have to be hit for survival?

Yes. The foot.
"Whatever else is evil, the pride of a good mother in the beauty of her daughter is good. It is one of those adamantine tendernesses which are the touchstones of every age and race. If other things are against it, other things must go down. If landlords and laws and sciences are against it, landlords and laws and sciences must go down. With the red hair of one she-urchin in the gutter I will set fire to all modern civilization."
- G. K. Chesterton -

Eh, even there, i'm not convinced. Your foot would be blown off, since the Smith and Wesson 500 has the capacity to destroy cinderblocks, and you would be losing blood fast. It would take some speedy medical attention.

You still have a risk of losing too much blood but you do have a better chance of survival.

A 50 cal machine gun round is more powerful, and people have survived it. A web search revealed http://www.thehighroad.org...

I think a shot through the lung missing other organs would be a good bet. It's a half inch hole clear through.
