The closest I found using Photoshop was Pantone Process Key# 85-1, which is a little lighter than the RGB you specified.

To give you an idea of how much lighter, Photoshop translated your original RBG values to C29 M100 Y100 K38, and 85-1 is defined as C30 M100 Y100 K30.

You probably wont get an exact pantone match to that color. Pantones are a set group of colors that have very specific values. Pantones arent like RGB colors where you can get whatever color you want.

The closest youll be able to get will be about 136-1 and thats on uncoated paper. That equates to RGB 127,12,7. An exact match doesnt appear to exist.
