The terms query parser does not have a limit like boolean queries do. 
This query parser was added in version 4.10, so be aware of that. 
Querying for a large number of terms with the terms query parser will
scale a lot better than a boolean query -- better performance.

The number of terms you query will affect the size of the query text. 
The query size is constrained by either the max HTTP header size if the
request is a GET, or the max form size if it's a POST.  The max HTTP
header size is configurable in the servlet container (jetty, tomcat,
etc) and I would not recommend going over about 32K with it.  The max
form size is configurable in solrconfig.xml with the
formdataUploadLimitInKB attribute on the requestParsers element.  That
attribute defaults to 2048, which yields a default size of 2MB. 
Switching your queries to POST requests is advisable.
