Default Max. strength 10?

So I was playing a game against my friends Chaos, as you do, and I rolled my 2D6 Zzap Gun strength. I rolled two 6s, thanked Gork N' Mork, and was about to (try to) destroy his goddam Bloodthirster with an instant death thingy (12 S-6 T) when he pointed out that you cannot have more than 10 strength with a weapon. Is this true? Also, would his invulnerable save make instant death redundant?

It is true, this is mentioned in Zzap gun rules (I think you lose a grot if it was not vehicle mounted.

His inv. save doesn´t affect instant death. He can take his inv. save (or armor/cover save where applicaple), and if he fails the save the model is instant killed.

He is right, you cannot have higher than str 10. Therefore creatures with T 6 or higher cant be instant killed. And Invulnerable save ignore the effects of instant-death, so you can roll them even if you are shot by a weapon double your toughness or more. Have you by any chance read the rulebook? Its a good place to start

FYI Instant Death doesn't ignore regular saves either, so if a Terminator is hit with a Krak Missile it still has its 2+ Sv, and only if it fails will it suffer Instant Death. It just appears that Instant Death ignores normal saves due to the fact that guns that are capable of it typically have a high AP thus negating most saves anyways.
