Well, if you look at just the weapons in Basic.

It's roughly:
ST: 1h/2h max wt.
6: 1/-
8: 2/4
10: 3/6
11: 5/8
12: 6/10
13: -/12

And if you then say max wt. of a weapon for a ST is BL/5. Then if you squint your eyes a bit, then it roughly matches. But not really.
But I think it's fair to say the weapons ST-requirement for the realistic weapons are eyeballed and fitted to match what makes sense. And not by a formula.
