Default Impaling Attacks to Veins/Arteries Hit Location

Howdy, Folks,

I don't often use the veins/arteries hit location, would like to make sure I'm reading this correctly.

A normal impaling attack to the arm or leg has the wounding modifier reduced to x1. The veins/arteries hit location gives an additional 0.5 modifier. So, an impaling attack to the veins/arteries in the arm or leg has a wounding modifier of x1.5, yes?

I know it seems straightforward, but I often overthink things, and want to confirm that the veins/arteries increase takes precedence over the usual arm/leg reduction or vice-versa.
