The UL White book receptacle section (RTRT) says: "Terminals of the wire-binding screw, setscrew, or screw-actuated back wired clamping types are suitable for use with both solid and stranded building wires. don(resqcapt19)

Ideal makes these forked terminals that are on the end of a little blue wire nut. They're much cheaper than crimp type, easier to use and look a lot better too. I use them if space permits, otherwise I use the ol' trick Steve mentioned.

I was always told to have the wire inserted with the turn of the thread ( clockwise ) and that would eliminate the insert from 'right side' comment. Of course if the binding screw is 'counter clockwise thread' that would be a different story.
