How does the recoil compare to a cartridge pistol?

Pietta .44 Navy, metal frame: 28 grains (volume) of Pyrodex P, and a .454 ball. I've only fired a Buckmark Bullseye .22 w/bullbarrel. Will mention I've fired about 5,000 rounds through it but never any higher caliber until the C/B. I've shot about 500 rounds through this and sure is a lot of fun! 28 grain seems the most consistant at 15 yards, although shoots high.

My question is at 28 grains, how does the recoil compare to a modern cartridge pistol or autoloader? A .25, .38, 357? Hope I'm clear on this. I have gone as far as 40 grains just to see the difference.
