So, does 500 psi seem OK, or low for line pressure? If it's low, any ideas what could be wrong?

I agree with Ed's answer - it seems your brake line pressure is below "standard." Here's a typical article on pressure:

If you DuckDuckGo brake line pressure this is kinda typical of the result.

It appears 750-1000 psi is a much more common number for brake line pressure. A bit higher for panic stops.

Measuring your present master cylinder's actual diameter seems like a good place to start.

Wells's law of engine size: If it matters what gear you're in, the engine's too small!
