On my road bike I have SRAM chain with almost 4000 miles on it. I did the ruler test on it. It shows no stretch at all. I am wondering whether I should replace it though it has not stretched. Every couple of hundred miles, I give it a bath in melted paraffin.
It's probably ok but...Dave Hickey

Chains are one of the few "bargins" in cycling today. You can buy a new chain for $20-40. All things considered, that's pretty cheap..
