Along with amount of powder, and ability to ignite the powder, I would think variations in cartridge case volume would be a very big contributor. Much more significant that crimp.
Yes, but this can be reduced by using sorted brass of similar origin and age/usage. This will result a more consistent crimp as well.
Not talking about "mixed brass". What I meant to convey was that the manufacturing process means that not all brass is identical, even though it might bear the same head stamp. Yes, the variations are smaller using the same brand, but not eliminated.

I understand that not all brass with same brand head stamp are the same.  There can be differences. I understand summary statistics and case prep (even for TNT (tight neck turkey) for rifle tight chambers as for bench rest)).

I agree and didn't use word "eliminated". I used word "reduced".
