Tips on improving RPM

Right now with 12 autoloaders (12! nothing screams realism like 90% of the turret being made of autoloaders lol) I have a sustained RPM of 4.2, is there any tips you guys/girls have to improve this? I used to be able to get well over 8 rpm with half of that. The reason i'm using 500mm shells is to go through layers of heavy armor, I don't really know if that's the ideal shell caliber for that anymore.

A bit of a meme shell, but definitely worth it to burst through shields and layered spaced armor is HVAP. 

Get the longest shell you can in 80-100mm: I think that's 4m as of right now, and 88 seems a good mix of fire rate, shell velocity and power. Put a sabot head, sabot body, HEAT secondary, HE charge, Sabot body and fill the rest with powder casings, rails are good if you want speed, but make sure that you have power to back it up, you'll want to test without the HEAT to determine max pen, then add a pendepth fuse set to that depth. Make sure the time is cranked all the way up, you don't want it going off before the shell has nearly come to rest. Then just do everything you can to make the sustained rate of fire as high as possible. Don't worry about accuracy, you want to pepper an area and open up holes for other weapons to exploit, just as long as most of the rounds make it on target you'll be fine. If you are careful about how you place your autoloaders and intakes you can also make "mixed" ammo loads so that every other clip you'll get high-damage rounds. 

Hope this helps a bit.
