So...I just got a step down ring that will allow me to use my old Wratten #25 on my 50mm. I didn't get a chance to try it today but hoping this weekend to play with it then converting to grayscale in LR or would I be better off in PS? Anybody do this? Any tips? What to expect?

Don't just convert to grayscale, it usually just results in a flat dull B&W.

In light room use the B&W option and adjust the colors to your liking

In PS use the channel mixer and adjust the colors. There is a box in the lower left for B&W or Grayscale that you need to check.

I'll be curious to see how it works, as most for film filters don't do well on Digital sensor cameras. It's the coating.

Actually I got some pretty encouraging results today. Still working thru it but so far so good. I bought the adapter to use some older diopter sets and those worked great but the Wratten 25 was to experiment and I do like what I am seeing so far.
