    Was wondering if you can put a17 hmr , a 22 wmr in the gun without switching barrels . In the owners manual it says it can be chambered for them... Does that mean I can put any of them in the clip and shoot??

    No.

    A shotgun can be "chambered" in 10, 12, 16, 20 gauge, etc. It means that the same platform can have a different chamber/barrel (and sometimes also action/magazine).

    Any individual one of those models will have a specific caliber it is chambered for - the others are "or's" not "and"

    Exceptions apply, like 410/.45/.45LC, 22S/22L/22LR.

    Plus,as if that's not bad enough,if you did manage to chamber a round it would be almost 1/32" per side too small to fit the barrel.Accuracy and range would disappear.
