It only states neutral conductors, not grounds. I still bunch them grounds up.

I agree that it must be labeled that the lugs are compliant with more than one- I believe Cutler Hammer is approved for 3 but it must be the equipment grounding conductor not the neutral as stated

You are talking about bond screws right ?
If you are .. Not sure about all panels but the ones I use(C/H) don't have enough spaces to separate all the bonds.
I'm one of the bad guys here though .
I,ll twist 4 or 5 together on a new tie in.

The CH panels you use don't have holes in the tub to install ground bars? An $8 ground bar can solve all of your grounding terminal woes.

Im known to jam as many grounds that equal the size of a #6 wire into one port.

it is legal only if the panel has a listing for more than 1 wire under a terminal.

Most houshold panels I have seen permit up to 3 bond wires. Usually #14 or #12 Often #10 and larger only 1 wire.

More than 1 wire and there must be some reference permitting it. Certainly for the power side lugs must be approved for more than 1 wire.
