generally see the latest NEC (National Electrical Code) standard but from the tables with assumed temperatures, the rating for 14ga copper is 15 amps (120V).

### Maximum amps 6 gage copper wire?

A #6 copper conductor with an insulation factor of 75 or 90 degrees C both have an amp rating of 65 amps. If the #6 conductor is connected to a breaker having a 90 degree C rating then the conductor can carry an amperage of 75 amps

### How many amps does 4 use wire carry?

What is 4 use wire? You mean 4 conductor? In any case, it depends on the wire gage and whether it is stranded or solid conductor. Look on the side of the wire. There will likely be something printed or empossed on the insulation like the following: 4-18 which would mean 4 conductor, 18 gage wire. Single conductor wires will have the AWG directly on them such as: 12AWG or 10AWG as used in homes. Find out the gage and reply. Then I can tell you the amperage limit for the wire. Out of curiosity, .... why do you want to know? Are you adding more load to the wire? If so, you should also consider the fuse that protects the wiring. It's rating will be lower than that of the wire so it fails first.
