Progressive press and priming "on the upstroke?"

Count me in the "prime on the upstroke" camp.
I have a much older designed Star progressive press with a Hulme case feeder dedicated for only reloading .45acp ammo, , and a Dillon RL-1050, and both seat the primer on the down stroke..... I also have a D-550 but once the ram handle is moved upward to resize, drop the powder, seat the bullet, and taper crimp the cartridge, then when the ram moves all the way down, the handle needs to be bumped forward to seat the primer....then the shell plate is moved manually (I use my left hand thumb) to be able to insert the next empty cartridge into the shell plate.....

What progressive press primes on the upstroke??
