Is the Storm Bolter a 6+ to kill or just rolling a 6 to kill?

Why does the Shooting Table show a 6+?

How would you get higher than a 6 using a Storm Bolter?

Rolling on a 6 kills a gene stealer. The "6+" is how "kills on a roll of 6" is noted in the regular Warhammer 40k game.

It's just for clarity (and rules lawyers) to cover things like a house rule that gives a character +1 when shooting, or an expansion pack (not that there will ever be one).

No, this is pretty standard for GW. They usually refer to things as 2+, 3+, or whatever.
