Edit: Reaper recently received a change that causes him to reload when he uses Wraith Form. If anyone has any input on whether this affects the achievement, feel free to comment.

Your best bet when going for this achievement is to try to make your first kill on your first shot after reloading. As far as we can tell so far, a solo kill is where no one else gets an assist. You may not necessarily do 100% damage, but it's been long enough since the person got hurt for no one to get an assist. People have inconsistently been getting credit for using Reaper's Ult as well.

Other than that, your best bet is to look for the squishy characters - Widow, Mercy, a D.Va not in her Mech, Hanzo, Zenyatta, etc. Essentially anyone with a small frame. Tracer is pretty weak but her movement makes it hard to get a good shot in. You actually want to AVOID helping teammates, as you're just wasting shots you need for your solo kills.

At least for me, I was in a fight where we both had to reload at the same time, so I was able to get a kill on my first shot. Sneak behind the the enemy, or wait somewhere you don't think theyll see you if you're on defense. Get them while they're distracted. Avoid reloading. Only reload if you wasted too many shots on your previous kills.

Edit: I've seen enough reports now to say with (some) confidence that death blossoming enemies you've hurt with the shotgun should count, as long as they are solo kills.
