Default Least Recoil

Does anyone know the semi-auto or automatic with the least recoil?

Is this actually measurable with some kind of device how much it kicks since the kick is determined first by caliber then by physical dimensions and balance points rather than exactly by caliber...

If you have enough data, just do a Google search for recoil calculator. There will be pages of results, that will enable you to run some pretty accurate numbers.

M95 Steyr? Only kidding. .22 seems to fill the bill.
