Well, how about that. You're another one who loves Dangerous Game cartridges for use in handguns. My daughter cherishes her 458 Lott Derringer for carrying around in her purse, especially to those high stakes poker games. Who wouldn't? I mean, why bother using a rifle when you can stuff all that punch into a holster or pocket? And it's a no-brainer with the prices the airlines charge for luggage these days. It fits in any suitcase. It's the practical choice for frugal sportsmen.

But even she won't pick up the 460. Go figure.
I hear alot about the S&W 460 Magnum XVR Pros & cons.
Does anyone know what three rounds are best. Starting with the
460 the 454 and finaly the Colt 45
Name only one round for each of these cal.

"Best" for what purpose? Guns, cartridges and bullets are like golf clubs; you need a whole set to cover every possibility.

For power and range, the 460 is the best and the 454 a close second.

For the recoil timid, the 45 Colt is the best.

I have all three by the way.

I have a 45 Colt and I use a 180 grain bullet with 6.0 grains of Tite-group behind it. I get about 750 fps with it and it is as accurate a load as I could ask for.
This is the minimum recommended load from Hodgdon but it works well fo me. My back won't let me shoot loads that are much hotter and I still care about accuracy more than power with everything but my carry weapons.
