Hello, all, my first post, and my first Angel post mortem:) Wanted to try if I can manage without magic powers of shotguns.
Never found any good pistol, of cause, so I had to make one myself. Storm Bolter is awesome. Sadly, it can't be upgraded further:(
But now I think, may be simple T3P2 pistols can be better. About same amount of bullets per second (with SoG<5), but 4 more damage per bullet. Smaller magazine, though, but may be it can be "fixed" with ammo chain? I heard ammo chains (and may be other ammo boxes?) can reduce firing time, but Wiki says nothing about it. Shell box definitely makes reloading shotgun faster, but by how much?
Technicians special abilitias are all very handy. Being able to heal onself in the heat of battle without losing most of that health while you doing it is great. And level map showing all monsters makes level trivial. Too bad master traits are not very good. Except sharpshooter, that is.

Congrats on your first Angel! You certainly picked up a good challenge and trait choice for the first one.
To answer your question - ammo boxes do not help at all with firing speed, but the greatly reduce reloading time (to 20% of original time).
Note that Shottyman is not affected by ammoboxes and draws ammo from your inventory, rather from an equipped ammobox (IIRC, this may be fixed for the upcoming 0997 version).

I'm not saying that they are bad. They are just worse than others. Or I don't know how to use them right (which is likely). I suppose killing things before they can hurt you is better protection than some situational resistance. I looked through PMs and nearly all technicians are sharpshooter or malicious blades. One scavenger in Ao100.
How am I supposed to use MB? Stack it with nanofiber red armor and tank Mancubi? Most dangerous enemies are plasma anyway.
