So someday when I get to do some riveting, how important is it to purchase the riveters with specially ground heads? Would any hand riveter work?

At least in theory, the avex are stronger then a solid rivet in that they have a steel core .

We are splitting hairs now and I am not going down this path, but I will say that we are now into conjecture. If we look at the Zenith construction standards they show 1/8" AN rivets to have a nominal shear of 160 kg or 352 pounds, when I compare them to the AVEX rivet data sheet it shows  1/8" to have an ultimate shear of 155 pounds.
