You will find the high duty brick will most likely be denser than lower duty bricks, whilst it may take fractionally longer to heat up, you will get longer heat retention. This would be better in my opinion, win win.

Marginally, but most firebricks are that little bit harder to cut.
They are fired at 1350c usually, where a housebrick is fired at 1050c.
