Nice. Just did that myself. Btw, have you unlocked Hera Tani? She needs some bloody rare cigars and since the source system isn't in boom, the max allocation is 15. Which means a 35 jump round trip + 7 docks (in my Asp X with engineered FSD). I guess that's peanuts for a lot of folk, but I took a 10% loss on a Type 10 just to yank the cargo containers out of it the other day - rather than jump around to buy some elsewhere...
Apparently, you can buy some cigars, abandon the cargo outside and have someone else collect them for you so you can go back for more. You still need to wait out the restock cooldown, but I already have 15. I'd be happy to help people do this if they would return the favour. (I'll probably start running the route in the interim though).

I was just interested to see how the mechanic worked and other people might want the info.

I can't remember where I read about it so I may have missed some important details. Perhaps you need to be past the half way point and decelerating for it to work.
Edit: pending state for Kamitra is Boom Maybe I'll wait. Managed to cut the round trip to 28 jumps by lightening my Asp too.
Edit2: Yeah, it's not so bad. 15m there and back plus 10m for a coffee break or something. Half done now.
The offer stands to help other people with this or any of the other rare allocations for engys though.
