Any good narrow beam GU10/MR16 line voltage bulb

I installed a track light with line voltage GU10/MR16 50W bulbs.

The light bulb that was included seemed to be rather unfocused. So, I got a Philips at a big box store that was supposed to be a 25 degree. Although the packaging doesn't specify the beam. Philips online specified 25 degree. It still seems to spread a lot.

I looked at the definitions on Wiki:
Multifaceted reflector - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It appears that the narrowest beam for a 50W bulb is 15 degree:
EXT: 50 watt, 15 degree beam (50MR16/15)

Can't find a whole lot of this model online. Does anyone have experiences or recommendations with such narrow spot bulbs?
Also, how to LED replacements compare?
