Being as the number of times an AR is charged is a fraction of the number of rounds that are fired, I doubt an upper is going to wear out from the charging handle rubbing.
I might charge the rifle only 2 or 3 times each range trip even if I shoot a couple hundred rounds.
That's 15 cycles of the charging handle per 1000 rounds.
