Well, since we still have not a rail gun deployed that is still up for grabs.
One more thing warship that will be equiped with rail guns will have a larger frame, mass made from highly conductive material(steel) not some kind of titanium alloy and, floating on sea(which acts as an Earthing system) not in mid air.

Frankly speaking you are trying to mix apples with oranges.
When you have a working rail gun deployed on a B1 bomber call me.
