Select from list of stock material sizes

Hi,

I set up a group list in my custom properties tab to select stock size from a list of common materials that can be kept up to date by our steel purchaser.  This was done to eliminate having to type it out every time, and also to keep the way they are written consistent.  I got all this to work BUT...

it is extremely slow.  When you first open a part, it takes almost 10 seconds to load, which appears to be caused by this stock sizes list.  That is fine for the first time a part is created, but not for every other time you want to open/edit/click on in an assembly the part.  Is there a way to move this list somewhere else, and run a one-time macro to populate the stock size that only runs on demand?  Similar to how the sheet metal table works, or have it auto-populate based on sheet metal table selection?
