voltage drop question

Hey guys,

Supposing you have a 600 ft. run. And supposing you have borderline voltage using 12 gauge cable on the 15 volt tap. And supposing you don't want the expense of going to 10 gauge for the total 600 ft. Does it make any sense to start the run with 10 gauge and then at some point splicing in 12 gauge for the remaining distance?

I'm asking this question for my friend.
