“SD” is the average difference in feet per second between shots. 
My 2¢…
I, personally, put a lot of focus on the SD of a rifle’s shot string because it shows me how consistent that rifle is. Consistency = less variation = repeatability = accuracy. 
Now there are MANY variables that go into putting multiple pellets in the same hole and this is just one piece of that puzzle.
