Sennheiser MKH 416 / MKH8060 "front pattern"

Ok we have all seen the polar pattern on microphone specs, these are done above the mic as a plan type view but has anyone had the thoughts of are shotgun (ie MKH 416 /8060) patterns being circular or eliptical in shape when looking from the front? (Think a circular cone shape or eliptical cone).....
The reason that I ask this is I have often thought the mic was a 'little wider' with the microphone slots on the side rather than top and bottom.

It's circular - looking from the front it's the same up and down as it is side to side.

If anything it would likely be the opposite.
