From the Gettysburg Parameter Data:

Confederate Leader Loss Values
Fire Wound: 2% Fire Kill: 3%
Melee Wound: 3% Melee Kill: 4% Melee Capture: 5%

How do you read this?

Does it mean a 10-man unit firing at a leader has the same 2% chance to wound him as a 500-man unit firing at a leader?

It would seem so because a Melee wound/kill/capture percentage implies a set probability per event (i.e. per Melee). So then the Fire effects would also seem to be a set percentage per event (i.e. Fire Combat).

Yes I think this is a pure probability value based on event. So if a leader gets fire or is in a hex that gets fire, the values listed in the PDT are the probability to take out the leader. Same counts for melee.
