I would think SD value is more important then ES because if you have 50 shots with a low SD but have a high ES, your gun is shooting very consistent but you might get one shot that will throw your ES way off.
That one shot might be due to a bad pellet or some other reason but the other 49 shots were very consistent which will be your ES.
Having a low ES and a low SD is something we all try to achieve.
