Is mixed headstamp brass a wise buy?

My purchase habits for once-fired brass has been to buy cases with a single brand headstamp and they usually come in "speer" cases. My favorite supplier is out of stock for the same headstamp brass I am seeking to buy.

Should I be leary of buying mixed head stamp brass? All manufacturors should be bulding cases based on the same standard specs; right?

I have read where some manufacteror's cases are thought to be thicker/better than others (star-line brass, for example) although I have never measured the thickness or other demensions of different manufacterors.

If cases from different manufacterors are different, can this cause different pressure levels or poor accuracy, inconsistent loads issues, etc?
