No, +10 = x10 means you multiply ST or MoS by 0.6 to get WP.

That's for fixed damage weapons, such as guns.

Effective ST is what you roll against. You can implement armor as a ST modifier, but it will involve (guess what) table lookup -- for example, DR 10 will reduce a 1d attack to zero (-infinity on a log scale), but will reduce a 6d-1 attack by only half (-3 on a +10 = x10 scale).

There are simpler ways of doing this, but they all involve table lookup, it's just a question of which table lookup you use.
