30-06 vs 6.5x55 versatility

Im trying to decide between the two cartridges. As a reloader I can load the 30-06 up and down, my question is how effective is it when loaded down? For instance lets say I want to make it shoot like a 6.5- Lower recoil, reasonably accurate- Can I achieve this by loading 140gr bullets in my 30-06? The rifle has an 11" twist.

Im wondering if the 30-06 can be loaded down and be made an effective lower recoil cartridge, or are there things the swede is just gonna do way better?

I ask because Im gonna be a 1 rifle guy for a while, want something I can shoot consistently and not feel beat from recoil and also something I can use from deer to elk.
