The computed recoil will be the same, or close, recoil is a momentum balance, mass times velocity equal in both directions. A slower, heavier bullet will work out about the same as a faster, lighter bullet.

I find the FELT recoil of subsonics to be less jarring. The muzzle blast is less, too; which is a comfort factor even with ear protection.
