I mounted my Bushnell 4200 2.5-10x40 on my Sako 75 with Leupold rings (one piece).  They were recommended by some here.  The mounting went smoothly and the bell sits just above the barrel.  But I can see a blurred barrel in the bottom of the sight picture at all magnifications.  Is this normal?  I've never seen this on other rifle/scope combos.

On the assumption that you can sight in with no problems, Yes it is normal. I use a K1 on my shotgun (1X) and can
see lots of bbl. Ditto leupold 1-4s on several rifles.
Just ignore it as it has no effect on anything and having the scope mounted low will give you a better cheek weld.
