I think this article will explain those numbers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAE_steel_grades

To "translate" them to European standards I would get the composition for them and then hunt for the European grade closest to it.  As composition actually is a range rather than a single value there can be overlaps.

i buy from this two, Edcon steel and Waratah steel.

Waratah if I need full lenght and lots of them, they have the best price. Edcon steel is more for bits and pieces and special steel.

https://www.waratahmetal.com.au/

PS

Edcon steel because they retail and cut, have heaps of offcuts they sell rather cheap, and sometimes the guys will throw the offcuts in your truck for free ... don't say i told you :)
