The original question was
How many times can you chamber a round safely?
Here's your answer:

Somewhere between 1 and infinity. Period.

The exact number is unknown and unknowable.

It is not something that must happen. It is not something that will happen if you chamber X number of times. It is not something you can say does not happen, it is an observed fact.

It is a RANDOM thing, and is COMPLETELY dependent on a specific combination of factors that are not knowable in advance.

Every single round chambered in every centerfire semi auto COULD have setback, only a very, very, VERY tiny fraction of a percentage of them do.

Every gun, and every round of ammo has a different combination of factors. There is no predictability.

I think we have answered the original question, and are done here.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
