Question

I am not certain what size wire to use for an electric range. I know I need a 50 amp breaker for 220v circuit. What size wire should I use, 12/2 or 10 gauge?

not 12/2 thats for sure, unless its for range light.
better wait till one of the others posts the "up-to-code" answer. I would think along the lines of 6 or 8 gauge.
