I think at this point most players know that MM Hunter only has 2 types; Great and Awful. There is no halfway point, because you either get it or you don't when it comes to the MM Shot rotation.

BM is good on some fights and not as ideal for others, but some (roughly half) of the fights are punishing in a sense to the MM rotation due to the constant interruption and having to re-apply improved steady shot with a double-steady shot ramp up. (phasing out for H Ultrax, changing targets on black phase of H Zon'ozz, the rapid target switching on H Blackhorn Ph1) So in a sense BM can be superior to MM.
However, this does not mean that it, by design, is capable of better performance than survival. If you are pulling better numbers from BM than you are from survival than you just need to practice survival more. The only fights in DS that I would even consider going BM for would be Ultrax and Morchok, and even then it'd just be for S's & G's. All the other fights the travel time for the pet is just lost dps, since roughly 50% of BM's damage is done by the pet. If your pet isn't in range, you're losing half your damage (and you can't even cast kill command, your #1 damage attack).
So if all you plan on doing is LFR, then by all means enjoy BM and play how you want (I AFK thru fights half the time), but if you are looking to maximize your output then you should practice your survival spec more, because it will grant you the largest benefit.

Hunters never die, they just choose to commit suicide. Often.
