Change pot value with cap?

Change pot value with cap?
What cap values will get me from 500K to 300K and 250K?

Ummm, none of them will.  
However, I take it you mean to ask what could you do with a cap on the input that would mimic the tonal consequences of using a different-value pot.  
If so, try sticking a cap of maybe 220-560pf across the input and ground pins of your volume pot to tame the sizzle a bit and warm things up.
