Will by 5.56 brass work in this thing? What, incidentally, is the difference between 223 and 5.56 brass?

For reloading? If so, yes. Brass is dimensionally the same. I would not recommend firing 5.56 ammo in a 223 chambered rifle, unless manufacturer says its safe.

So if the brass is interchangeable, what's different in the cartridges?

Chamber pressure. (i.e how big of a boom)

Best the OP try and do a search so he will understand the differences. The brass is interchangeable
