Under the NY SAFE act from 2013  (which has been amended several times due to judicial rulings) , what is the maximum legal Magazine capacity/number of rounds that can be put into said magazine) for a semi-automatic shotgun?

When the SAFE act was first enacted, it restricted the maximum magazine capacity (and maximum rounds) to 7, but that was amended in 2014 and again in 2015 for handguns.

I am getting conflicting info with respect to the maximum magazine capacity and maximum rounds that can be carried in a Semi-Automatic Shotgun  (at home, and at the range).

It is my understanding that since 2014, you are allowed to have up to a 10 round magazine and 10 rounds in a semi-automatic shotgun.  I would appreciate it if anyone can confirm or clarify this for me.  Thank you.

Not sure but I think a semi-auto is limited to 7 in magazine capacity. That was the last I heard from the SAFE hotline. Such as it is.
I think a pump would be ok with 10 but that is just because I did not see any other specific wording except for the general SAFE 10 round magazine limitation.
Don’t even ask about mini shells. No idea.

There have not been any amendments to the SAFE ACT. That is bad info.

You can have a 10 round mag in a handgun, plus one in the chamber.

Semi shotguns appear to be limited to a 7 round mag, plus one in the chamber.

Pump shotgun should be the same limit as any other magazine - 10 rounds

The Judge in the Western District ruled that the mag capacity is based on the stated capacity with the shells it is marked to use, so mini shells do not make the capacity illegal. HOWEVER, 11 minishells stuffed into the tube may be a cuomo crime.
