"Try to" vs. "try and"
These phrases are largely interchangeable, though "try and" is generally avoided in more formal prose. Some say it's simply wrong, or that it ambiguously suggests two actions. But "try and" is standard, idiomatic like "come and visit" or "be sure and tell us". MWDEU has details: http://bit.ly/UikkHD
