A 50 bmg rd is .510. My question is can I use a regular 500 gn bullet or more that is .510 but isn't labeled bmg? Is there any difference between them? Thx

As long as the bullet is of the proper diameter and you have the appropriate load data for that weight, you can use the bullet. The bullet doesn't have to say BMG.

The only thing a would have any concern about is whether the bullet is designed to handle the load you are putting on it. Some bullets really aren't designed for all pressures and velocities so you could run into trouble. Examples are full pressure high powered rifle loads with lead bullets and super explosive varmint bullets in a 22-250 or swift; they may not play well all the time. You can sometimes run into issues like the 223 has where not all twist rates will handle bullets well also. If the bullet is a rifle type bullet and the diameter is correct have at it.
