How to use the Search Feature

What the correct syntax for a search on multiple consecutive words or a phrase such as: (burris 1500) or (250 yard group), huh?
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!

    Use +keyword for required keywords.
    Use -keyword to exclude posts with a keyword.
    Use quotes around a phrase to search for a phrase. Use spaces around the word to match the exact word. Example " word "

    "burris 1500" "250 yard group"

    or: +burris +1500
    +250 +yard +group

    The two ways above will bring different results. Sometimes changing how you search will get the results you wanted, but in a slightly different way. Try both and see what happens. It might all depend on how it was typed to begin with.

    Good luck grasshopper. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
