I think I get the idea...

Yes. Accuracy is most often the primary quality I desire in ammunition. I want the bullet to strike directly where I send it, and not detour in flight.

However, accuracy is relative to purpose.

Handgun accuracy for target shooting must deliver exact accuracy results at 50 yard or 50 meters, depending on the contest.

Defensive handgun accuracy must group no more than 5 inches (a head shot) at 25 yards or meters, but must have other criteria, such as suitable power levels and reliability.

Accuracy standards for long range rifle shooting is more stringent than accuracy standards for hunting dangerous African game. As are the power and reliability standards.

But for general practice and pleasure shooting, accuracy is paramount.
