The secrtet to avoiding cans exploding is to not exceed their pressure rating. For example, 3 volumes at 68F would see about 35.5 PSIG.

From calculation, I've primed and bottled for 3 vols on quite a few batches. They did okay. No bombs. So with can's I'd think you'd be safe for even more.

Aluminum cans hold pressure for soda, which is carbed much higher than 3 volumes. But those are factory-sealed on production line equipment, so no idea if homebrew canners will yield the same strength. YMMV.
