    There are a lot of choices for you starting with the 243 Win. I would suggest perhaps a 30-30 or 7mm-08. The choice will all depend on where you are hubnting and how much recoil is too much? Are you hunting wide open spaces or in the timber? What centerfires have you tried and which were unpleasant?

      If your two main requirements are lightweight and low recoil, you can't do much better than the .243 Win.

        There is also managed recoil ammunition that you could check out.

          .243, 30-30 a good choice for shots 200 yrds or less, 7-08, 6mm Rem, .260, 25-06

            I'd have to say the .243 is your best bet. I'd like to recommend the 7mm-08, but I have one in the lightweight Savage 11 and it definitely has a little "bump" to it when I shoot. I've heard the.25-06 is light recoiling, but I don't know how heavy the rifle is.
