Bruce,
I do not know the proportion for Reese's pieces but there is a whole article on M&M's in this months CHANCE magazine. The proportions for plain M&M's is as follows:
Brown 30% Yellow 20% Red 20% Orange 10% Green 10% Blue 10%
This info was in the article, plus, it can be found in a brochure from M&M/MARS. The article also lists the proportions for all of the different kinds of M&M's.
