is it just me or is the .17 HMR a waste of time?

Neat little round. It's not a waste of time IMO as variety is the spice of life.

Flat shooting, accurate as hell and even more fun (IMHO) than .22LR.

I can't wait to get a chance to go P-Dog hunting with it some day.

I think my next custom build is going to be a 10/22 magnum conversion to .17HMR.

I guess everytime I see .17 it reminds me of a BB gun

To each his own, but I certainly don't feel insecure shooting a red-hot 17HMR. It is a very high performance round, and a ball to shoot.

To each his own, I guess, but I would recommend shooting it before forming an opinion.

Can I borrow your BB gun?

From www.hornady.com:

17 HMR 17 GR V-MAX
Velocity (fps) / Energy (ft-lbs)
Muzzle....................100 yd...........200 yd
2550/245............1901/136.......1378/72

Trajectory (inches)
Muzzle...................100 yd............200 yd
-1.5............................0.0..............-8.50

(I kind of like it, as a rimfire...)

-edit cuz the "chart" didn't line up-
