How to stuff four #6 wires in to an outlet box


How to stuff four #6 wires along with the 50a receptacle into an outlet box? I can't find this in any book, some things can only be learned by experience. Any tips on how to do this from the experienced electricians out there would be appreciated. (I am using a box similar in size to the 4x3-5/8x3-1/8 as recommended by kbsparky in one of my previous post)

Is this for a range? They make a box intended just for this.
