RE: Cres 301 = AISI 301???

AISI no longer maintains standards for steel chemical composition.  However, the information in MIL-HDBK-5J for Type 301 stainless steel (UNS S30100) is what you need.  CRES 301 and AISI 301 are just informal/obsolete terms for Type 301 according to any number of current standards like SAE J405.  SAE J405 does not have requirements for mechanical properties though-- these are specified in either ASTM or SAE AMS standards.  Refer to MIL-HDBK-5J for more information.
