Inductively heated irons are less affected by thermal mass and not affected at all by conductivity between the heating element and the tip because they heat the tip directly.

Anyway, I ended up bumping the temp up slightly to 600F and switching from a chisel tip to a 3mm hoof tip. Especially with the 6mm RC Proplus connectors I find the hoof tip less likely to wick solder up out of the solder cup and onto the side of the connector (the sides don't hold solder only the beveled tip) 550F worked but the solder was reluctant to form a proper fillet onto the wire with the 6mm cut away type bullets.
