Modern .50 ammo cans-USMC related

I need some .50 ammo cans for my USMC M1A1, I know the modern .50 differ from WWII, and Vietnam era cans, and I have found modern ones available in etch, but, what I am unsure of are the "fat .50" ammo cans. Now I know the population is getting fatter, if you believe the media, but ammo cans?
In all seriousness, what is the difference between a .50 and a "fat .50"? Do the USMC use both? I can't see any difference on the sellers site between them, but small pictures don't show differences that well!!

Just enough knowledge to be dangerous, but not enough to help anyone.
