Yes, different brands of brass can shoot dramatically different. Case capacity, hardness, and neck tension are all almost sure to vary enough to matter.
Bedding is something that takes practice, but it is not hard. Do some searching here, and on 6BR and read a bunch before you start. If you can repaint your living room and get good results you can bed your rifle, it is all about preparation and attention to details.
I have bedded about a dozen rifles now, that includes re-doing some of my early efforts because they are no longer acceptable to me. It can really make a difference too. I bedded an older Savage .223 for a friend and it went from 3.5 inches at 200yrds to 1inch.
