Phil, there is a well known gun shop owner in RSA that took 19 baffalo with the 9,3 and on top of it all this hunter is a lady. All one shot kills. To me the difference is so little between the 9 and the 375, That I believe you can use the 9 for elephant as well. But I guess they had to draw the line somewhere and 375 was the min.
Yes, I can recomend a couple of ph's/ outfitters. I have done so in the past on this forum, and since then the Usa hunters came over here twice and used the same ph both times.
The usa hunter is a member of the firing line and I can pm his name and you can bet in touch with him yourself to confirm my info.
