The question is, does that work if your enemy can outrage you by 50%.
Sure you can go fast, but so can he.

How about I build a ship with R3 railguns (range 45") aft and forward.
You come after me, and I break into two groups.  You case one, and the
other chases you.  With the extended range, I can hit you from outside
your range pretty consistantly.  If you turn arround to take on the
chasers who are firing at you, the leaers turn arround and become
chasers.  Not much fun.

Fighters and special super fast attack ships can of course close the
range, but it might be hard to get your battle line to engage.
