How do YOU prime?

As I proceed to assemble gear and acquire knowledge to get started reloading, I would like your input on something. There seems to be a huge variety of ways to prime: on press tube-fed, on press primer arm, freestanding unit, hand primer, ram prime, the RCBS strip system in various permutations, and more I'm forgetting.

What do YOU like/use/dislike, and why? This is for a single stage press (at this point anyway).

I have a Dillon 550B that does the priming for me on .40, .223, .22-250, .308.

But for the other calibers that i load on my RCBS press i use a Lee Autoprime.
It works great and fast. I keep the friction points lubed up with Militec-1 and its smooth as butter.

But my 300wm gets primed on the RCBS Rockchucker press, everything else goes to the Autoprime or Dillon.
