It looks like you are confusing bitrate and sample rate.
There's no "bitrate" with usrp_rx_cfile.  What you get is a sample
rate of 500k samples/s

By default you're using BPSK (1 bit / symbol), but the receiver needs
at least two samples / symbol to handle synchronization issues.  Thus
you've got a baseband sample rate of 500kS/s, but a bit rate of
