Using a Sniper Zer0, which is better. Elemental or White damage guns?

I'm level 16 right now and about 12 hours into the game. I notice a few hundred points difference in the crits from white damage guns compared to elementals. Will this always be the case? Or should I start going more with the Maliwan guns over Jackobs?

on playthrough 1, i found elemental weapons to be the better option.

electric for shield enemies, corrosive for robots and the like, fire for flesh enemies.

on playthrough 2, everyone and their mother has a shield, so i switched to jacobs guns because of the raw power. most of the enemies shields resist elemental in PT2 (except shock obviously) so the jacobs guns work nice because the damage isnt resisted.
