Only if you're in a feral form because feral combat skill is always maxed. When you're looking at your character sheet the numbers will vary depending on the form you are in which is why the prior posters are saying to compare it in both cases while in a form.

For melee DPS, increasing Hit removes part of the Miss from the combat table and adds that to the normal/crit portion of the combat table. Increasing your hit rating up to the hit hard cap will increase your crit cap. In functional practice against a boss, you may notice an increase in crit rate when you use some Hit gear because without it some of your Crit was over the cap and being wasted. This however should not affect the calculation used on the character sheet, the character sheet simply compares your combat rating to a target of the same level (400 attack skill if maxed versus 400 defense) and then factors in additional elements like crit rating, agility, buffs, talents, and so on.
