Winchester 45ACP brass sorting? esoteric question

Seen some folks sorting out each winchester variation

WINCHESTER, .WINCHESTER. (overseas factories), WIN, W-W, WRA, WCC, WCC MATCH

I like winchester brass generally cause it seems v strong and does not dent or deform easily. I have alot of 45 brass and will prob sell some eventually.

i separate out the regular WINCHESTER and WINCHESTER nickel so the
hornady brass cleaning solution i often use doesn't mess up the nickel.

the foreign dot-win-dot brass has a different shape rim curved down at the edge rather than square cut.

i like the date on the WCC and WCC Match and have a good collection of dates back to 51. The wife complains at this point and i respond my father had a large collection of heavy 19th/ v early 20th century typewriters and moved continent 3 times hahaha

can't see any significant production differences on the WIN, WRA, W-W

does anyone have any production history on those, are they all still being made?

does anyone have any performance issues with these variations?

thanks for your thoughts
