As a newer pilot (2 months) I have heard a little bit about autocannons vs railguns. I would like to know what are the direct benefits and cons of both, I know railguns have a longer range, but they use up power when being fired and autocannons do not? At least I believe that is correct.

I am trying to plan early as I want to fly a megathron once I get all my core skills up and once I get my gun skills to a good level. Thanks!

Look at a ships bonuses to determine what weapons you should use. There are exceptions to this, as well as unorthodox ship setups, but most ships are designed to utilize a specific weapon class. For Gallente, that is hybrids and drones.

A Megathron receives two bonuses to hybrid turrets and there's very little reason to use anything else. Use rails or blasters.

As with every other ship in eve, just fit 1400mm howitzers on it.
