So, I may spray 10 bullets into the enemy, the first couple kill him, and the others don't register, but they were still dead on him, while in core they would be registering. So accuracy doesn't matter...plus if you use shotties or some other weapons like snipers, you're accuracy is going to be higher than assault rifles, which I use.
You're k/d sucks. Yes some guys (187) play objective games that stack the odds in their favor as they hide in some area near where everyone is going to go and pick people off pretending like they are good. But really, you're a good player if you have a good k/d in deathmatch/free-for-all or other scenarios based on straight kills and not some objective. However, my k/d took a shit in objective games like dropzone where I focus on getting to that area and getting points... but your k/d will suffer since the entire enemy team knows where I'm at as I'm holding a small area. That took my MW3 k/d (which is lower than past COD games to around 1.7. But Hardcore Teamdeathmatch is around 2 and hardcore free-for-all around 3.
Can't wait for Blackops 2, since without last stand and quickscoping, I anticipate my k/d skyrocketing.

How is being very accurate NOT a sign of skill? It means I aim and snap onto target much more skilfully. My gaming style is to use an assault rifle (G36) with extreme conditioning for most classes, and I moderately run and gun - usually patrolling a couple of points. If you want to confirm my accuracy is ~ 33% then add me as friend on xbox, I'll pm you my gamertag.
You can still be mobile and be very accurate, it's just a matter of keeping the reticle raised and where you think the enemy might be, so if you're running towards buildings, have your screen focused on the doorway. Then if someone pops into view, as soon as you aim down sight you're already very close to on target. My accuracy was 18% but I just practiced and got it up over a few months.
BDC - Hardcore does favour spraying bullets definitely as you can get a kill by spraying, as it's a one or two shot kill, and therefore can be a less accurate game. In the situation you say of keeping firing but shots not registering - just fire in 3 or 4 round bursts bro, and that solves the problem.
I play a mix of games - core TDM and domination, and I also play a lot of Hardcore mosh
