    Or is their a advantage to replacing them after so many rounds or period of time if the AR is still functioning properly?

    Yes they will wear out. As to how many rounds I don't know. I swap mine every 3-4k. However, I tend to run heavy'ish buffers and feel there is less margin for wear.

    Yes, replace it when it no longer conforms to the dimensions below:
