Lower the number the better.

The accuracy value for a gun is given in meters at a range of 100m.  For a value of 0.32, this means that at 100m, your shot may disperse by  up to 0.32 meters (about 1 foot). This dispersion amount increases  linearally with distance.  For our 0.32 accuracy gun, at 200m it could  disperse by up to 0.64 meters (0.32 * 2), and by up to 1.60 meters (0.32  * 5) at 500 meters.

The actual dispersion amount is based on a Gaussian (normal) distribution curve.

lower number means more accuracy. they are determined for dispersion at 100m, so .31m of dispersion is better than .51m of dispersion.

This explains it.

Anything below .35 is good for long distance sniping +400m
Anything between .35 and .4 is medium range <300m
Anything above .4 is more than likely a derp gun thats only really accurate up to 200m(and that's a stretch)
