Rebuilding motor new cam or not?

Here the deal had a motor rebuilt, was supposed to have a new cam and crank. Well he decided the old cam with 350k miles was still good, less than .001 of wear. He is telling me the cam is billet steel and the cam is usually not replaced in these motors. Is that true? Thanks for any input.

Even with 350k miles on the cam it should be ok. Anyone know what material the cam is made from forged steel or billet?
The lifters have all been replaced. The motor was supposed to have a new cam, but the builder decided not to put one in, not me. I found out after I got the truck back. Thanks for the reply's
