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.

The cams do wear but usually if the truck has been maintained(oil changed regular) the cam should be ok I have only seen one with a bad lobe. It was not kept up rest of motor was gabage also.
