    What am I doing wrong with Search function?

    I'm on my mobile device looking at the full site

    If I enter. 222 or 222 in the quick search box I get zero results

    If I go advance and change up the parameters I do no better, I believe I have tried all the options and permutations

    We all know there are posts about .222 with the string in both headers and body txt.

    So what do I need to do please?

    Sometimes I just do a Google search of the site for what I'm looking for.
    Just did one for 222 and got many hits.
    But like you, using the site's search function for 222 got nix.

    I don't know the answer, but the search function can be fickle.

    Copy this in to Google: site:nzhuntingandshooting.co.nz .222

    Cheers @MB have always struggled with the search function on here. If you try "here and now" it is often on the 3rd page of results, same with "things you like"

    Funny that you mention this.
    I was trying the exact same search just last week.
    No hits on .222 of 222

    I think thats just the way it is ive never had any success with it either probably why we keep getting whats the best gun or whats the best caliber threads. Mind you every one sould know something in 6.5 is the best

    Ok, glad I'm not the muppet. Are any moderators paying attention to this thread? Any chance of a fix? Its a pity its so hard to search such an amazing wealth of info, also, as above, might indeed explain recurring threads on same or similar topics. Anyway, guess l'll revert to the workaround above.
