Material Master - Mass Update - Locks

Hi All, i am not sure where exactly this belongs BASIS/ABAP but posting here from development perspective.

We are in the process of mass creating 65,000 material master records and extending them to plant and storage location views. We are not planning on to use LSMW or WinShuttle. From a development perspective, I do not like the approach of updating one material master at a time using (BAPI_MATERIAL_SAVE) as it might take a long time to update (over 8 days). So, we are looking at BAPI_MATERIAL_SAVEREPLICA (Update multiple material masters at one time) but are worried that it might cause locking issues since our locking size is limited to 200,000. Do you guys see or have any other options that we could give a try?

    Why can`t you split the qty and update one after other.

    Is their any constraints to use LSMW in your Org.?
