I've bought new rifle and had a Bushnell Elite 4200 2.5-10x40 scope put on it. I've got one question/problem.
 
When looking through it at 2.5X magnification there is this roundish "shape" on the bottom edge of the view. It disappears when you go past 4X magnification. Is this normal?
 
Apart from that i haven't got any other problems with the scope.

Did he mount your scope properly, new base and mounts can correct that problem if you have a talented gunsmith.

If it persists get a hacksaw and remove 1 inch of barrel length at a time till the spot goes away.

Well, that made my morning!

 If you don't like the roundish shape, consider replacing your barrel with an octagon one. Remington even makes a triangular one now.  Yep, Thought So

 Glad you got it figured out, AK.
