Too many raid ights in TBC are melee unfriendly, if you dont have good control of your pet, and some luck, your pet will die easily, which is a big deal if you are beast mastery.I would say the 0 / 20 / 41 build is much better for raiding, the high crit chance is really nice, plus you regain mana from critting. The expose weakness is a nice buff for you and the entire raid, especially rogues tanks and other hunters, much more effective than imp hunters mark.Also, dont underestimate readiness. For example, using rapid fire twice in a row, or if you accidently pull aggro and FD isnt up, you can rediness, FD, then continue to keep blasting, with a clean sheet of aggro and all your buffs ready to use again.It's very nice for keeping your DPS at a maximum.And the shot rotation is more fun than BM, which I believe is something like steady shot steady shot steady shot steady shot, yawn.

Neh, in my experience thusfar (up to Kael, Vashj down) BM is acceptable and can keep up in DPS on most fights, with the exception of Leo and Alar, and Al'ar def isn't that bad (even Leo is manageable once you get the knack of it). BM seems to bring a bit more utility to the raid, as FI generally seems better than Trueshot, assuming you has at least one TS hunter already. Now, this may all change once you get into BT, but thats my two cents.

mm, Also, BM and MM hunters decidedly out DPS Survival hunters in our raids, and I cant chalk it up to skill (they out dps ME when they're specced BM or MM!)
