I have done the same as you, except I have only put 1 autocannon and
loader each on 20mm by 20 mm bases.

I don't use any transports for IG infantry regiments at all. I find
have found that the points cost of transport isn't worth it. Instead
I just advance them in line with support weapons picking off enemy
forces that get within range. Kind of like a wall of death. I
also use two ordinatus mechanicus (the sonic disrupter and deathray)
their assault values add to the assault factor of my IG infantry

My standard IG infantry detachment consists of:

1 HQ (upgraded to a captain)
3 IG squads (with 3 units upgraded to Commissars)
9 Support weapon batteries.
