I have not had my hands on a holley 770 street avenger in many years so I don't know right off hand on what the air bleed and idle feed restrictor sizes are but I can maybe guess here that its very close to the 3310 750 vacuum secondary carb.
What is your timing curve as that can affect things. I once had a issue like yours and no amount of carb changes would help and I found out that I did not have my distributor set back right after changing out a new rotor and cap on it. I was off on my timing by a small amount that was enough to give me tuning fits.
What color pump cam is currently on your carb and what size shooter? After figuring out your primary side of things I can round up my research and photos and post here or maybe in the 670 street avenger post on the secondary side of things. Also is your street avenger the 2 corner idle or 4 corner idle and of so how far out are your idle mixture screws?
Okay, the cam is a flat tappet hydraulic with 270* advertised and 224* at 0.050". The pump shooter is a 31 and I have the red cam in it. I have 13" of vacuum at idle (800rpm) and 18-19" at highway speed. My engine seems to like a lot of timing as there is almost 18* at Idle with vacuum advance unhooked. Total is around 36* at about 4000rpms. I bought a spring kit to kick the timing in sooner but have not installed it yet. It's a Pertronix flame thrower distributor and it gets a full 12 volts. It never misses a beat clear past 6 grand when you floor it, but the advance is a bit lazy. Any thoughts?
