My 700 sportsmen shuts down when fuel level is low but not empty. refuel and it will run fine until levels are below 1/2 of a tank. I have removed fuel pump and found nothing to be wrong. What could be causing this?

I would pull the pump again, check the line between the pickup screen and the actual pump motor- it may have a crack in it. So then the pump is sucking air when the level gets low.
