What do you use 3-level overcalls of 1NT for?

Assuming you have some conventional defence to a 1NT opening (weak or strong) such as Multi-Landy or Asptro for example, when and why would you overcall at the 3-level?

We have been using them as natural bids in conjunction with our Grantsino method and always seem to get bad results. It could just be that we are unlucky or not picking the right hands but it could just be a bad idea!

For info, our defensive method is:

2 is 5/5 in the black suits OR 4+ clubs and at least 3/2 in the majors  (2 asks for better major)

2 is both majors

2/ natural

2NT minors

It is intended to be high frequency as we predominantly play against a weak NT.
