Default Bow ST to Bow Pull Weight?

Is there any sort of calculable relationship between a Bow's ST value in GURPS and real world pull weight?

Like, what is the pull weight for a ST 10 bow? or a ST 8 bow? or a ST 12 bow?

Could it be calculated from basic lift?

The assumption in Douglas Cole's Deadly Spring Pyramid article about bows is that pull weight is 2.5x Basic Lift.
