Generally, most negatives get better with some slight over-exposure. It reduces grain, increases contrast and pops colous. It can be overdone, of course, but 1 stop is not a problem. Go for it.

Your camera will over expose it by 1/3rd automatically already, so careful not to add too much on top of that.

My advise would be to meter externally, use a gray card, use a focus card (or similar) and rate the film as follows,
200 -> 125
500 -> 320

Hi,

If your talking about the latest 5217/7217 I think it's was the first film I ever tested where the speed on the can was correct. When overexposing be careful if you have highlights 4 or more stops over, they may burn out earlier than you were expecting!
