As the Key Lime Pie recipe says, you can use regular lime juice but it takes more juice than when using key limes. Key limes are more pungent and tart tasting than regular limes.
A bottled key lime juice was tested for this recipe. Florribbean 100% Key Lime Juice was simply terrible. The pie was not edible with the finished product having a plastic taste to it.
