Custom Property Data Limit?

I'm storing a tab-delimited text list in a custom property, with each 
item maybe up to 25 characters or so in length and around 12 items per 
line. Over time, this could grow to several hundred thousand lines. The 
data is displayed in a datagrid. It's working just fine for me at this 
point, but is there a limit to how much data you can put into a custom 
property? Is there a point at which there will be a performance hit when 
displaying in a datagrid? I'm just wondering if I need to start learning 
about sql for my data storage for the long haul.

Thanks for any input you may have.
