Ok I just found a sweet spot to do this. Load up a Solo game on Episode Three - The Keep, Cadet difficulty with four players worth of Zombies. As soon as you start run forward then to the left to a dead end, There is the Preacher weapon leaning up against the wooden doors - GRAB IT. Now proceed about 1 minute through the level until you come to the Snipers and Summoners, Kill the First Sniper then let the Summoners spawn the Zombies. They will spawn more Zombies than I've seen anywhere in this game and the best part is when you kill them they will get regenerated again and again and again lol. When you run out of ammo reload checkpoint and rinse and repeat. I went from 6000 to 8000 in about an hour maybe slightly less. It's best to leave this achievement as your very last for obvious reasons. As Nesmaster in the above solution stated, Explosives don't count but may do when a patch is released to also fix the broken Gold bar collectable achievement. This is also a great spot for the 100 Sniper,25 Summoner, 20 explosive AND the 5000 Sniper shot achievement!!! Hope this helps with the final grind!!
EDIT: At the time the solution was wrote it was 14:55pm at 8000, Got my achievement at 15:37!!!
EDIT AGAIN: Ehrenfried has kindly added some math to the solution:
If you play the campaign once you will end up with around 3000 limbs shot off.
You can force it by shooting on their arms and legs and heads! It all counts!
[I found out that headshots counts as a limb!]

When you play every horde mode map to wave 10 for the achievement
assuming you will need two tries for each map and you play with a partner,
you can count roughly 2000 limbs which makes it around 5000 overall.
(There is a Preacher in every map, us it)

And with the new info back to the math part:
We have 5 limbs per zombie (2 arms, 2 legs, 1 head)
If you round up 6 zombies with this method here you will get 30 limbs per shot
(sometimes it hits more zombies sometimes less)
The Preacher has 16 shots which makes 30*16 = 480 limbs shot off for one complete try.
5000: 480 = ~10, which means you will need 10 tries with this method to get 5000 limbs.

Let's say you are fond with how to train the zombies in "The Keep" after 2 or 3 tries
we can say you will need 5 minutes (First get rid of all the snipers!) per try.
so we can safely say (10 tries * 5 minutes) = ~1 hour

But please remember this is just a statisic based on my observations,
and i played with a friend and we set the enemy to "1 player".
So please don't vote negative if you don't get the achievement after this math.
Markyshizzle has made a vid showing it in action - Thanks buddy!!

Update 1/7/2015
ColumnedJet9 Has discovered that explosive kills now count towards this achievement!

Mobius Evalon has discovered another tip to help you get this a little faster!
Standing back about 30-60ft away from the Hordes with The Preacher allows the gun to reach its full potential by getting maximum limbs!
