Stone Shouldering

Stone Shouldering is an event in the next competition I’m going to. I’ve tried this two times now and my 165lb stone is easy, but awkward and I failed on my 220lb stone. This was without tacky, I think I’ve got a 240 to my shoulder a long time ago with tacky. Does anyone have any advice on getting the stone to your shoulder? The event is most reps in 60 secs. Thanks.

What weight is the atlas stone at your comp

Estimated 220-240lb. I have both a 220 and 240 stone.
