Any feedback or opinions on the Leupold Euro 30's and the Burris Euro 30's? Are they good in low light?

I can't comment on each idividual model, but if you are wondering if the 30mm scopes offer any more low light performance over each companies comparable inch model, the answer is NO.  The 30mm models only give you more adjustment range, not low light performance.

you do gain a little bit more strength in the tube of a 30mm as well.

Wouldn't the larger internal lenses in a 30 also allow for better resolution due to a potentially better swwet spot in the lenses? Better resolution will often lead to a beeter precived image as it gets darker. I have a Burris ED and it's a great scope. I couldn't tell a huge difference in optical performance between it and my Nikon during the day but at night the margin was noticable. It's my 1st 30mm scope and if anything I think the bigger tube just looks tough!

In theory, maybe, if you've got the adjustment all the way in the corner somewhere.
In practice, no.

It really depends on overall design and which price point the scope was built to.

As far as the original question goes, Leupold Euro scopes are essentially VX-2 in a bigger tube.  You are paying a fair bit more money for a privilege of having a Euro label.  Optically, the scope is nothing to write home about.

Burris Euro Diamond (I assume that is the one you mean) is currently on closeout, so there are a good deals.  It is a much better scope than Leupold Euro.

30mm tubes often don't provide more adjustment range. Some do.
A 30mm tube can be made stronger than a 1" but I doubt that they all are made that way.
I don't know why some people continue to think there is a difference in light transmission.

they probably think bigger is better would be my guess

A 30mm tube of similar material and thickness to a 1" tube will be stronger.
