Download it and Macro a mouse button,
perfect re-fire every time, no jams.
how exactly are you doing this? group fire the 3 uac/5s? or assign each uac/5 to weapon group 1, 2 and 3 separately?
I'm using the latter method to rapid fire 5 ac/2s on my jagermech ( im using macro ).

Weird. My last game I was in, someone was saying I was using a timed macro. I went on here just to see how others were using their Ilya.

This may not seem to be that great, but since the last patch the UACs jam a lot less and you can often fire 3-4 salvos very quickly with maybe one gun jammed on the last salvo. They never jam on chainfire and just pour out a steady stream of shells so if you have a steady hand for leading you can strip away most armor at range then toggle chainfire off when you get close and blast away with all three guns for the kill.

I am somewhat depressed to say that I mounted the build of the week. Gauss/PPC. And its working (more depression).
I'd like to say other loadouts have worked for me but since the highlander patch I have not died by side torso in 25 games. I'm even thinking about puttin an XL into an atlas. My previous gold standard was XL300, gauss, 3 LLas. But the burn time of a large laser (0.75 seconds) gets me cored stupendously fast.
XL320, Gauss (30 shots), 2 PPC
Weapon balance currently favors the long range punch and twist. The only successful battle tactic for non-light mechs seems to be alpha-twist-wait... alpha-twist-wait... Dakka Dakka is occasionally works like days of yore but more often fails egregiously. One-on-one dakka is still pretty good and can even throw some shots off target. But if there is a 35-60 alpha with line of sight to you, you are going to die in 2-3 alphas.
I miss my dakka dakka. And missiles. And dismemberment. Perhaps it will come back some day.
