How many rounds does it take for you to consider a gun/round combo proven?

For an auto pistol, a minimum of 200 consecutive rounds; for a carry gun, that is with the carry ammunition and each carry magazine. If there is a failure, the count starts over.

I double it.
Has Taurus really spent more on shipping customers their firearms back to them than actual sales?

If there is a failure, the gun isn't to be trusted and it goes to a place I like to call, elsewhere. But that's just me....
I just recently went through the "when can I consider it reliable" question with my PT709. After over 300 trouble free rounds using 3 different brands of ammo, I think it's good to go.
With my Sigs and Glocks, a couple mags and I called them good.
