Rod and main bearings

I am replacing the cam in my bbc I noticed very few metal particles on dip stick from cam lobes going flat. When I inspect the rod and mains what should I be looking for as far as excessive signs of where. I understand the scratches but the part I need to know is if copper is showing dose this mean the bearing need to be replaced. The motor only has about 8000 mi on it but it has been lead footed a lot.
Any advice would be nice
Thanks
