I've only owned 2 rifles with muzzle brakes, and both were 7mm RemMags. None of my monster calibers have them, and i have zero issues shooting 1-hole groups, if the rifle can.
So, I wouldn't say muzzle brakes make you a better shooter, I would say that if someone is recoil sensative, they can enhance their shooting abilities by helping them not to flinch or be scared of the rifle, or anticipate the recoil and cause you to shake or panic.
