I want to get better a sniper in 6s so I can do better in last holds and in stalemates. What are good ways of practicing sniper?

just playing a lot of sniper, even casual should help, hitting the easy shots consistently is more important than anything else.

I vaguely recall some custom kovaaks or aimlab maps have been made to simulate TF2 sniping, so you could give those a shot as well if you're into that sort of stuff.

Pubs are definitely good practise for getting the muscle memory.
Obviously 6s is good 6s practise, but the issue is you get the opportunity to go for shots and angles way less.

Practising in 6s (scrims) to me is more about thinking if sniping right then is the right decision/if the way I position is correct. The right opportunities will come up more as you learn to make the right calls. I basically ask myself "should I snipe right now or a different offclass/scout?" every time I want to switch to it. Sometimes I decide to do it anyway against my judgement and it stills works out. So it's more about learning than kicking yourself when it doesn't go right. Also in pugs/mixes nothing matters so snipe your heart out lmao

Aim trainers aren't as good as people claim, but they're better than nothing if pubs aren't your thing. Avoid if you have better options (aka most options)

HL isn't as good as pubs imo (if your intention is to get better at 6s) because you're always thinking about spies, getting spammed w detonator, perma counter sniping, etc. In pubs, like 6s, you don't have to think about these things as much (because the players are worse. not because they're not there) and you can just chill and find out which angles work, but without the pressure of having to actually hit the shot

get as much practise as possible by staying on sniper long after the enemy has used into last, resupply and stay sniper, block the point as sniper, go sniper to the next mid,

in addition to what everyone else has said, just go on maps and look for shitty angles. (protip: ask your medic what bullshit angle they've died to)

just want to add to this having unfortunately done both, sniping in 6s is more about being good at taking quick shots at odd angles at times so I would just pub and practice that kind of style until you're no longer thinking about your aim on the class and feel comfortable. don't over think it
