Lightbulb Old Hunter - New Calibers

I just had my shoulder rebuilt and will have to lay off shooting my favorites for awhile (about 2 years). My favorites have included the 243, 25-06, 7mm STW, 338 Win Mag, 35 Whelen and 458 win mag. I may be able to shoot the 243, but the rest are probably out of the question.
Having missed deer and elk season this year due to the surgery, I would like to be able to go hunting next year. I am therefore soliciting your sugestions on lighter recoil rifles. I would like to hunt both deer and elk next year.

I just recently traded for a 6.5 x 55 hoping that it might fit in the light recoil category. If anyone has any other suggestions I would really like to hear them.
