Recently, I have encountered some customers who are getting drawings from their customers calling out for material specifications that they don't recognize.  Additionally, I'm finding some customers who typically know the material they usually buy being stumped by dual Specs.  Such as C93200 is Bearing Bronze but but it's also referred to as SAE 660.  Same material  - just 2 different organizations (Copper Development Association - CDA & Society of Automative Engineers - SAE) calling out for the same material.

Well I came across one of my Cross-Reference guides and thought I'd share.  This is by no means a comprehensive list but it's something for some of the common 800 & 900 series alloys.  It lists the UNS, SAE, Alloy description & typical material applications for the following:
