If the light and heavy bullets are both moving at the same velocity, then the heavier bullet would have more muzzle energy, and according to Newton more recoil...all else being equal. Typically, the lighter bullet is moving faster than the heavier bullet because we adjust the powder charge. Since velocity is squared in the equation, that would have much more impact on recoil.
