I would stick with the lapua your using add a muzzle break, I had a painkiller on my 260 rem and let me tell you is had no recoil. That will get you out to 800m plus on deer sized game. Now we have to get you a pistol for the bigger critters.
That's why I recommended ...

A LR handgun/pistol with an effective muzzle brake like what Ross Schuler is shooting in the videos ...
the .338 EDGE
or the .458 LOTT
... might be the ticket. Surely, the 6.5 will be more forgiving.
Good luck BH!
