Ultegra 50T Chainring?

So, my new bike has an Ultegra standard crank with 53/39 rings. On my old bike I had replaced with 53 with a 50 to get less drastic change when shifting up front, so I had a 50/39.

Is there an option to get a 50 tooth Ultegra in a 130 BCD? or am I stuck with what I have?

Thanks,
Murray

I think FSA makes an option that works with 130 BCD

Many 50t 130BCD rings made. Best, IMO, is TA. shimano does make a 50t, made for their 105 level triple which is 50/39/30, but it will work fine.
