Trivia question. In the 20th century, what was the first rifle adopted by the U.S. Ordnance Department that was designed and produced for the original cartridge it was intended to use?

No, not the M1 carbine. The trivia question has to do with a rifle not a carbine.

Even if the trivia question included carbines, the M1 carbine is an incorrect answer.

No, not the '03 Springfield rifle which was originally designed for another cartridge, the 30-03 cartridge. Even the M1 rifle would be an incorrect answer as it was originally designed for the .276 cartridge.

1917 Eddystone.  Just a guess but it was built around the 1903 M2 round if I recall correctly.

The M1917 rifle would be incorrect as it is a copy of the British Pattern 1914 rifle originally chambered for the .303 British cartridge.

The .30-40 Government cartridge was developed for the Norwegian Krag Jorgensen Model 1898 rifle that was originally chambered for the 6.5 cartridge, so it would be an incorrect answer if the trivia question included rifles developed in the 19th century.

Seeing the above clues, I'm going to guess 7.62 x 51 for the  M14.

The M14 is incorrect although it was the second rifle designed and produced for the original cartridge it was intended to use? This response is a clue to answering the trivia question.

Was the AR-10 officially adopted by Ordnance?

Or if the BAR is considered to be a light MG, then the 1941 Johnson.

The BAR is a rifle. The Johnson rifle was never adopted by the U.S. Ordnance Department.

No, the AR10 rifle was never adopted by the U.S. Ordnance Department nor procured by branches of the military. Select fire AR15 rifles were procured, not adopted, until the M16(same rifle) was adopted by the U.S. Ordnance Department.
