No I sure do not. One of the problems is understanding the abbreviations. Another problem is some WWII manufacturers continued to make cans many years later.

One cannot necessarily go by ammunition lots number either. Arsenals often took existing batches and transferred them into cans well after the batch was made. Thus a WWII batch of ammo could have been re-packed in 1951 or 52, etc.
