HA! I will be the first of many to recommend a savage in .257 or 6.5 caliber. Brace yourself. You're going to get alot of this. You will also get some .243/6mm suggestions..but I am a "bigger is better" kinda guy. As far as a low recoiling caliber.. id go with ANY 6.5. preferably a .260rem.
"...I shoot big cartridges, not because I am ego bound, not because they are needed to kill big game when well placed shots are made, but when an error is made, they will get you out of trouble more often then a lesser round."
