Yes, this is definitely a server limit of some sort. It could be PHP memory, or also the maxvars limit.
I would check your server logs and ask your host to have a look too.
As a long term solution, I would consider changing the way your data is structured. Perhaps using a post type for each row of repeater data and attaching the columns of meta as fields for each post object?
