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.
