I see that you can't shoot more then 50 rounds of P+. What is P+ and will it be marked on the box?

SAAMI overpressure 9mm ammo will have either +P or +P+ marked on the box.
More importantly, it will be designated in the headstamp on each new shell case.
Ammunition manufactured in foreign countries is not subject to SAAMI standards.

Private reloads could be any pressure, and may be marked incorrectly or not at all.
Reload mistakes can be hazardous ... be 100% aware of the source and liability.
When in doubt, always choose safety first. hth

Have fun. Be safe. Welcome to the forum.
