Default Milk protein powder and its calcium content

I learned recently that milk protein powders can contain rather large quantities of calcium per even a small serving (e.g. 700mg calcium per 30g serving mixed in water). My question is, say I were having many servings a day, which is not unusual when I am dieting - are there any known risk factors for consuming such large quantities of calcium (e.g. 5000mg+ plus)?

I analyzed a similar issue some time ago because I like drinking plenty of milk and I've added whey protein to my diet. And I'm also taking a multivitamin which contains calcium.

As far as I remember the upper limit was close to 2.5gr, so taking 5000mg sounds like you're taking a lot. Not sure about how much you can push the accepted limit, but a 100% doesn't sound good.

Here is described some symptoms of calcium overdosage:
