While i lighted everything up with practicals and tungsten lights i got an incidental meeting at my key light of -2.8 and a half- i opened my lens full at t2.4 but i used a lot of cts gels and some cto on some lights so my blue awfully clipped in the blue shadows...
I would like to know at what speed people mostly rate the 320 when the shoot with tungsten.

320? There is no 320 film currently on the makret? There was a Kodak 320, but that's a very old stock-- hasn't been made in years.
Both Kodak and Fuji sell a few 500T stocks in both S16mm and 35mm, which we normally rate @ 320 to tighten up it's grain structure; but it's a matter of taste really in that case. Sometimes I'll keep my '19 @ 500 other times I'll go 320 or even 250 with it, depending.
