Boxfill question... octagon boxes.

How many conductors can go into a 4" octagon box? How many conductors does a 4" octagon box extension buy you? I think we are referring to the 1 and 1 half deep ones.

We are wiring some lights at work tonight and have different opinions on the subject.... (im pretty sure I know the right answer but need to settle a bet from a 3rd party opinion.)

What size conductors are in the box? Are there any internal clamps? Any ground wires, wires pulled through or devices in the box?
