So a UC front end needs all the shims removed to get to zero camber.
At this point will there be any caster inheret in the set up or will it be around zero too?

There should be a little positive caster if you have the correct control arms, the top ball joint is offset rearward to achieve this. Ideally you'd want a bit more though (not that zero camber is much good either).

If your using it for regular track work add lots of positive caster and a reasonably amount of negative camber. If its for street use stand the tyres up. Setting more than 1/2 deg negative static with the correct toe setting will give you inner tyre ware.
