Range “bag” as in singular?  What’s that?  :)
I hear ya!  I’m loaded up for the range now and have 2 large and 2 medium size range bags loaded down LOL
Definitely time to invest in one BIG one with wheels or hire help :)

My range "bag" is a cooler on wheels with a pad on top to use as a seat. inside has shelf type lift out layers with simple finger hole to lift them out. Have almost everything on your list in there. My SP01 Shadow with holster, ear protection, 10 full mags and 200 rounds of extra 9mm on top. Misc goes in middle and targets on the bottom. Unfortunately if I am bringing a rifle i still need a bag or have to change a layer. Enough extra room on to to collect about 4 times the brass i shoot when finished.

I have multiple bags that I use depending on what type of shooting I plan on. I have a match bag, rifle bag, Chrono bag, spotting scope/rifle stuff bag. Sometimes it gets to be a little much. I can't give my wife grief about too many suitcases anymore, she's been to the range with me.

Larry,  you need a western style scabbard for the rifle, adapts easily to your set-up. :)
I have one with a removable shoulder strap  for my shotgun,  but no cart.  I am starting to struggle some with all the weight.  Most of the other non-shooting essentials have a home in my truck.

Find an old jogging stroller at a garage sale, they are great for repurposing into range carts.

At a big match with a lot of walking between stages, I use my large bag for pistol/mags and necessities then a smaller sturdy bag for ammo (sometimes 500+ rounds).  Plus a cooler or water jug strapped on.  Save your energy for running around shooting and resetting targets!

Took this pic at Single Stack Classic, seems like everyone is doing it now.

Jogging stroller is pretty much the standard for 3gunners isn't it?

Yeah, the pic I took isn't coming through.  Everyone had one at the last big USPSA match I was at.  Barry, IL range had 14 stages so lots of walking and one BIG hill between the upper and lower bays.  Stroller was almost a necessity.  3-gunners have even more guns/ammo to haul.  If you can find a used one for $20-50 it's worth it!  Or be like me and dump Cheerios out of the seat before loading it up!

I went with a wheeled bag too. I hold almost the same amount of stuff in my G.P.S. 2215RB Rolling Range Bag, Black. The link is below.

I like that stroller idea. If I ever become homeless I can use it for my personal stuff as well...

My wife found me a nice three wheel baby carriage that I did a few mods to including rifle carrier. I use it mainly for matches I am shooting alone.
I have a folding four wheel cart I use when shooting matches with three friends. Three range bags and a small cooler. I bring the cart, I don't pull!

I got a free stroller courtesy of Craigslist and modified it as my gun cart. I welded a frame for a cooler which sits in the front (where the baby’s feet are usually at). I also bought and mounted 2 pairs of ATV gun mount for my rifles for 2 and 3 gun comp.

My nephew bought me a roll around "range tub".  I have never used it.  By the time I get the guns/ammo/targets in the trunk of my Coupe there isn't room for the cart, even though it folds ups for transport to/from the range.

My youngest son got me a backpack that holds lots of pistols, magazines/ammo and I have used that a couple times.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.
