Feasible method of cracking long, randomised passwords?

That's what rule-based attacks do (see philsmd's post above) and those are the recommended kind of attacks for every attack where a full brute-force is infeasible (which applies to almost all attacks).

You are mixing things up in a weird way here. The amount of hashes per second vs the about of total candidates (and thus full attack ETA). Even with a (much) slower hash rate your dictionary attack will likely complete much faster than a brute-force attack of a meaningful password length. That said, philsmd has already provided some hints how you can make your dictionary attack a bit faster. However, while in many cases it's possible to get close to the mask attack hash rate, it will usually end up with a slightly slower rate.
