If your friend thinks it is Winchester .45ACP production inside the Russian spam can pictured then he must have x-ray vision.

Every can I opened had mixed head stamps so he might find some WRA but likely a lot of other head stamps and mixed years.

I had a bunch of it several years ago. Its in 40 round thin cardboard boxes. It will be mixed some may even be steel cased. All I had was dated 1942. With that said it worked great in my WWII Thompson. If he sells I would buy both if reasonably priced.

So my friend decided to open up his spam can to see what he had and he ended up gifting me a box. I only looked at the first row of bullets and it looks like a mixture of early US production. Neat stuff.
