It's a registry setting...

HKCU\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\>version<\AVGeneral
Name: iprintScaling
0 = Fit
1 = None
2 = Shrink

Close Acrobat.
Change the value
Open Acrobat and check... Depending on the version of Acrobat it may take a few tries to get the right one.

Disclaimer: I, AcrobatUsers, Adobe Systems, nor anyone, nor anything else (sentient or non-sentient, living, diseased, nonliving) shall be, in any remote manner, responsible if you completely booger up and hoze your computer by manually editing the registry.

There are two choices when you set the page scaling: None and Default. Default is whatever the application would use without that preset (e.g. the last value that was used for page scaling for the last document printed). When you set it to None, the print dialog will select "Actual Size".

Actually, I think the values have changed for AXI. Shrink to Fit is Dword = 3 in my registry.
