My fuel level is just below middle on the sight glass.
Do you have an open plenum, I use a one inch four hole spacer, makes throttle response really crisp ?

Can you really trust that A/F meter ?

Idle Eze Notes.
Is that manifold on a SBF? My manifold is a square-bore. I think it would make a difference in the casting where the carb meets it. My mixture screws are a half turn more rich than yours. My float levels are a little bit higher than the middle line of the sight glass which I know is a bit richer than they suggest. I have no spacer on the manifold. With my EZ idle screw bottomed out the carb is not letting in any un-metered air into the motor. Yes my A/F meter is a good reference point - like I said when I noticed the problem I changed the BG back to my 750cfm VS Holley and the meter ran true in the greens (slightly rich) where I like it for best acceleration.
