Beyond 25 yds has seemed to be the land of diminishing returns for me as well.

I would add that I hand load for all my vintage 16’s both spreader discs and X spreaders. I also always use Jay’s over layer of shot on the discs. Consistently, I get a more open pattern with the discs than with the X’s which is nice for the guns that are choked F-F.
Disc in the RB, X in the left.

And no complaints about pattern uniformity with either.

Interesting that this comes up now. Just yesterday I was out chasing quail and had a funny sounding report. Picked up the hull and saw this. Spreader load in a Lefever 16. Never happened before and this was the fifth shell fired from the box:
