I have a lot of old Wargames Illustrated magazines
that had scenarios for Rapid Fire rules.
Thinking of using the order of battle from those to play games using the Bolt Action rules. So 8 men is company of infantry etc. Any obvious issues?

I use them with Battlegroup WW2 rules in much the same way. You've got to be careful with porting over heavy weapons, as I think RF is stingy with them. And, of course a tank in RF represents 3-5, but I usually just use one tank equals one tank.

I don't see why not. The original rulebook even had a 1:1 France 1940 scenario with absolutely no changes to the rules.
