Craig, you could always buy a shed load of barrels and answer your own question Personally I think you'd have to go impractically big for the gun before you started noticing a difference which would annoy you during play.

when does it become a hinderance (loss of range or power)
When the volume exceeds the optimal size for whatever piston/cylinder you've got.
Sort of related info here -
Those holes in the side of your cylinder are there for a reason. On shorter barreled aegs, this bleeds out unnecessary air so the bb is propelled with optimum pressure when the piston is at its most effective. If there was no hole it, bb's would plop out the end with a significant drop in fps.
Thus, increasing barrel length will usually bring a slight rise in fps up until the 'sweet spot' (relative to your piston vol/stroke) is exceeded, at which point you would start to get a reduction in fps.
Adjusting the cylinder hole's postion can help balance this, as would changing cylinder volume and/or stroke length.
