Photoshop CS6 - Cropping box size to smallest before resampling

I am often cropping my 12Mp images to zoom in on a bird or another critter with a preset of 1333 px x 1000 px. But I want to use the available pixels, no more, no less (no resampling).

So far, I have been playing with the crop box corner handle for matching box actual pixel size with the number of pixels I want to keep (1333x1000). Seems kind of primitive to me, and it's tricky to get the box exactly that size by moving the mouse in the corner handle. Is there a short-cut in PS to make the crop box automatically size itself to the preset pixel size over the displayed image so that I will then just have to position and possibly rotate the box before applying the crop? Or if no short-cut, an equivalent trick?
