Breaker panel grounds

I have a couple of ground wires that are twisted together in my breaker panel and are going to one hole in the ground bar. Is this satisfactory?

Do both wires go to the buss, or does only one wire go to the buss?

Hi racraft, yes the are twisted starting from after coming in the box all the way to the ground bar in a single hole. I did some searching and it looks like it is OK if the panel is designed that way and is written on the box. I couldn't find that statement on my Murray box. Permit says 1980 for inspection. I did find the directions on the box cover that indicates that I can use 2 wires in each hole on the ground bar with 10 to 14 gauge wire.
