I got a KG3, 1.6mm some time a go.
Today for the first time I had time to see how it changed the colours in combination with some of my filters.

The images are posted below, first to the left with the filter alone, then to the right stacked with the KG3.
White balance is done on the same known white detail in each image.

Camera: Canon EOS 60D full spectrum modified. Lens. Novoflexar 35mm 1/3.5 @ F/8

My favorite is the last one, although I also like the BG3 2mm + KG3 1.6mm

Too bad the sky didn't go blue with the Kg3 and bg25. The tree colors with amd without the kg3 are what I like.

From my experience, B-410 will look better when stacked with KG3, however it still looks orange in my tests, with my camera.
Camera difference may be a factor that I have no way comparing here.
Your BG3 stack looks about like what I tried also.
Here is my B-410 + KG3 test, and also my BG25 + KG3 test.

I like the aesthetic of the BG25 + KG3. It reminds of my very early attempts to shoot UV (and the start of my frustrations with IR contamination!).
