In regards to #6 avoid using wire nuts period (IMO). Unfortunately this would just not be practical. The reality of it is as long as they are listed for that purpose (and they are) they are accepted for solid and/or stranded wire. The important thing is to install them correctly. In the industrial world I have used them for A long time on stranded wire with very few failures. I have had other peoples wire nuts come off while my hand was in the junction box and guess what YEP OUCH stings a little, doesn't it.
