Hi BSR, and welcome to the forum!
Your hunch is correct, to question the "fine gentleman" at that shop.
Rio lines has charts on their website, to show recommended lines for many different rods:
Scroll down to your rod, and you'll see they recommend Skagit lines from 475 to 525 grains, so your 500 grain line is right in the middle. Sounds like a perfect match to me. (Read the note at the top of the list, explaining the two different grain recommendations.)
