The Campy-width 10X1 probably won't work very well on a Shimano 10-speed drivetrain as it is 6.2 mm and Wipperman's Shimano-spec chains are 6.0 mm wide. The Shimano-spec chains will work on a Campy drivetrain and, in fact, Campy's own ultra-narrow chains are now 5.9 mm.
I called Wipperman's distributor about using their Shimano-width chains on a 10-speed Campy bike and was told they would actually be better than their Campy-spec'ed chains. The fact that Wipperman's Shimano chains are generally less expensive than their Campy chains is a plus.
