I have shot a bunch of their 45/70. I never had a problem with it. It was a pretty mild load but they shot well.

Many years ago, about 15 I guess, I got a couple boxes of Miwall .44 mag 240sp. for my dad's Marlin 1894. Strangest thing, they would tumble out of the barrel. I tried shooting them at 100 yards and wondered why tree branches were breaking off ten feet above the target. I moved the target back to 25 yards and got about a two foot "group".
I sat them aside, and when I started reloading I pulled a few apart, dumped out the very light charge of fast powder and replaced it with something slow (Blue Dot maybe, don't remember) and they shot fine. I shot the two loads side-by-side for comparison. Sure enough, the Miwall loads tumbled in every direction because of the powder charge. I never did quite figure that out and it was a long time ago, but I do believe that commercial reloaders in general tend to load lighter out of liability concerns.
