I found the best way to grind kills was on "The Don" mission located at the docks. I switched back and forth between machine guns depending on which type of ammo the enemies were dropping (changes by the area).

Make your way through the enemies leading up to Big Sal. It may seem like they spawn infinitely but they don't. If you keep moving forward, many enemies seem to run to a predetermined spot before they try to attack you, so you can just pick them off as they run past. I stuck to machine guns and tapped Left Trigger rapidly on distant targets to snap target them (on Easy difficulty). I could manage the run up to Big Sal in less than 5 minutes, killing anywhere from 65 to 75 guys depending on where I ran.

Once you've killed him, start running back and once you get to the 3 tankers enemies will start spawning behind you. Take a few out then let them kill you to avoid the rest of the run back to the safe zone.

This method should without a doubt get you the achievement in under 45 minutes if you've completed the story, which I finished with about 400 kills.
