I don't think you have anything to worry about. You might want to throw a sound blanket/sweatshirt on it if the mags are loud, but, yeah...they're MADE to be Silent, and also Reflex.
Hence the name.
Jon Fauer's book might have exact decibel levels in it somewhere, or maybe the Arri website would have specs for the SR3, if you're really curious.

If the mag is loaded correctly, you should have little problem at that distance with a directional mic.
We're wondering how loud this thing is, do you think a studio mic that is 10-15 feet away will catch the noise from the camera if it makes any?
Problems can occur with close-ups shot on wide angle lenses for sync dialogue.
We have a barney - padded jacket - for these ocassions and sometimes pile coats on top as well.
Using a good shotgun mic, you can help by ensuring that not only is the actor 'on axis', but that the camera is 'off axis'. To put it another way, try and ensure the back of the mic is pointing at the camera

But in general the camera is fine for sound as long as it's been maintained well.
