"The stake crimp is specified on .303 British military ammo..."

That's more than a standard 3-stab stake crimp....

Jean Huon's book also shows examples that appear to have a rather heavy neck crimp instead of a stake crimp.

Ah. Here we go.

Fourth picture down on this page shows a number of WW II era British-made .303 cartridges with a heavy neck crimp.

Those photos are also a pretty good indication of what kind of variations you'd see in the case neck.
