I don't like sharpshooter in this setup. It's almost counter productive. Lets assume you can stack a reasonable amount of crit on your own gear along with your other skills, then you will be critting often enough that sharpshooter will only ever be handing you a couple of points. I don't have math on this, but similar skills in other games function this same way. Sharpshooter is better in builds that use little crit overall, because then they can ultimately gain a large amount of crit from it.
I think Perfectionist or Night Stalker would be the better choice, since your build is, as Otter said, very Discipline heavy.
Also, which weapon type would you be using with for Archery. Crossbow or Hand Bow?
I will take hand xbows, night stalker would not be as good with a crossbow

The thing you are missing though is that outside of that first opening second or so, you are only getting at most 12% crit from sharpshooter, and a lot of times not even that. Let me throw some napkin math at you.
The thing is that it doesn't seem to make much sense in a non-crit build. The base crit amplification is 50%, that's not really that huge, not something that I want to spend a passive slot building up to at 3% a second. Using Sharpshooter in a non-crit build is going to end up wasting its proc on something like Multishot or Chain Gang a lot of the time. When I imagine doing things with crits, it's building up my crit damage amp to over 100%, hitting someone with a Grievous Wounds Impale and doing on the order of 800% weapon damage.
At least if you're using it in a crit build, you can try to get some decent attack speed and open important fights with 100% crit on 2-3 abilities, whatever you can lay down in the course of a second.
