I bought a redlake hycam high speed 16mm camera(uses c-mount lenses). I used one in college but can't remember if we used 500 and pushed or what. I know we just used daylight(bright sun). anyway I'm into some experimentation with this thing if anyone has some experinece I'd much appreciate it.

You can use what ever Film Stock that you want. It depends on how much light you have and at what frame rate your shooting.
Check your meter at different Film speeds. 500 is the fastest Kodak stock(I think) and depending on what your shooting you might need to use 500 ASA.
You can also Push process and gain a stop or two, but you will increase the noticeable grain and contrast when you do. I love grainy contrasty images so if that's what you want, it just depends on what you want to do. I'm not familiar with your Camera so I can't comment on that. I'm not an expert by any means so this is just my opinion only.
