I remember reading somewhere that Eley primed ammo is detrimental to barrels because of a higher consentration of ground glass in their primer formulation. Anyone know if this rumor holds any validity?

Eley Priming is a definate plus if anything- its notably consistant which is about the most important feature with target ammunition.

Yes, it does have ground glass in it, but if its good enough to shoot hundreds of thousands of rounds through $5000 Anschutz rifles, I wouldn't be too concerned about shooting it in anything else.
