I fly Amarr ships, up to battleships. I have high armour and cap skills and less with the actual guns. I have decent drone skills. What is the best set up for null sec ratting? I currently use one of two ships, an Armageddon battleship or a Harbinger battlecruiser. I active tank both in classic PvE style against Guristas pirates. Is there a better Amarr ship for this that I ought to be training for? Or is my best bet a good fit?

I would look to a Zealot although it sounds like you'd also need to develop your energy turret skills to make the best of the great bonuses this ship gets to them.
It should give you dps and tank of a battlecruiser, or at least one as good and the other close, and be faster as well.
You'll suffer with cargo size for loot but a can at a safespot will sort that problem out.
5 medium beam lasers in the highs (or 4 and a salvager if you desire)
Active tank and maybe a cap power relay or two if you need the cap recharge in the lows.
An mwd and webber in the mids leaving you a spare slot. Either a cap recharger if you need more lows for tank or maybe a painter. You might want to consider a scram or disruptor if there is a chance of being jumped by hostile players.
