Question about film speed with internal meter.

My camera says it recognizes up to 400 speed tungsten film, but I would like to use Kodak Vision2 500T. My question is, If I use the 500 speed film, how will the meter react to it? Would I be able to accurately compensate without having to buy a seperate light meter?
Many people talk about rating 500 ASA as 320 ASA (the 2/3 of a stop overexposure is considered a good thing). So if your camera thinks it's 400 ASA, that's probably fine.

The 500T has no filter notch, so your camera will most likely read it as 250ASA, exposing 1 stop over.
Which is probably still fine anyways. Will all cameras allow for the daylight filter to be inserted or are there some cameras that will override the manual indoor/outdoor filter switch?
