Data refresh of QA env using PROD.

    I am running CRM 2013. I like to Refresh my QA env using the Production env (DATA). what is the best way to move data. In the past I have done this:
    1)delete the Org in QA
    2)Delete the DB that points to the ORG
    3)copy the DB from PROD into QA sql server
    4)create the ORG using the new instance of the DB
    This way on the import I can map my PROD users accounts to the QA user accounts so once imported everything points correctly. Can you provide best practice or a simpler way of doing this?
