You can find the wheels on EBay, make an axle from aluminum rod and bend a handle from conduit or aluminum tube. The trick is mounting the axle and the handle to the stool.
I have a older Creedmoor stool with a Ray-Vin kit with inflatable wheels. With a full load it remains easy to haul across pavement but it can be a challenge to move the stool/cart over uneven ground. I'm looking for a way to modify my stool/cart to carry all my gear plus more (I'd like to be able to add a small cooler) and be easy to move over rough ground.

The benefit of a three wheeled jogging stroller/3 gun cart is the ease of moving the cart between shooting positions (especially from 300 to 600). Sport carts like the Mac Sports four wheeled cart has the same advantage but neither work well as a shooting stool on the firing line. Hauling a fully loaded two wheeled stool/cart conversion can be a challenge over rough ground.

Has anyone ever built a stool/cart with two axles and three or four wheels?

Has anyone used additional parts to lengthen the wheelbase?

If yes, how did it work out, was it worth doing and what parts did you use?

Option #2 would be to load the stool into a sports cart to haul everything between firing points and just take the stool from the ready line to the firing point.

Any and all suggestions are welcome!

I keep my shooting gear in my cart and my gear in a backpack. Backpack holds a small lunch cooler, 1/2 gallon water, rain jacket, sunscreen etc. That way I can keep the weight of the cart down, plus leave the cart behind and take the backpack for pit duty. Also, my cart stays configured for shooting and I know where everything is; this might not matter at a club match but at a place like Perry it is essential to be efficient because you only get two minutes before rolling into prep.

My backpack was about $10 at Walmart. My cart is a creedmoor stool with their cart conversion kit.

not cheap but I've seen a couple of these on the line

The rifle carrier and scope carriers are built like a tank. The video shows a guy picking up the whole cart by the rifle and scope stand. He never touches the cart

Thanks again for all the ideas
There is going to be a pearl harbor match at Youngstown rifle club next Sunday. You should attend. Great match for a good cause. The guys at Y-town put on one of the finest walk and paste (no cart needed, covered firing points) matches I've ever attended.

Great networking opportunity to find gear and get some shooting in

Here is my old work horse. Cheap and effective. Harbor freight dolly, atv rifle racks(holds 2 rifles for 2 match days)
All range gear has a place, spotting scope, mat, coat. My Creedmoor deluxe stool hangs on a hook and holds all the little stuff. Also an umbrella onboard for rain or shade. Cooler for lunch, snacks and drinks also makes a nice seat in the pits, stows in under stool. You can throw a small pack on the cooler if you need to haul anything else.
The whole cart can be covered with a usgi poncho & secured with bungies.
I've had it for about 4 years now, tweeked things, added stuff, removed items. It works for me.

This is from 5 years ago at Talladega. I still use it. Used baby jogger with large wheels (tubed). Carries EVERYTHING easily. I think in this picture I took 4, maybe 5 rifles, but no scope. It's not the "best" for across the course type shooting since I have to take everything on/off, but it's a hell of a lot better for shlepping the 1 mile+ walk to the 200 yard line at Viale than a typical shooting cart. You don't have to "hold" onto a three or four wheel transport all the time. For shorter transports like at Talladega I can carry all four rifles for a complete day of 4 GSMM matches. And it rolls easily across rough ground. For me it's been a great solution, I came up with it before I started shooting across the course, but it's perfectly acceptable for that too.

if you are in decent shape, drop you spotting scope to the bottom, place all your stuff in you stool, then, slide your rolled up mat down the pole, and put the pole thru the handles of the stool,
rifle , slung over one shoulder, using the bipod (pole estended thru the handles) over the other shoulder, (let the stool swing at the end of your spotting scope poles) and walk to the nearest shuttle or hut,

easy peasy,
