The lights are on
The quickest way to kill a necromorph, and conserving as much ammunition as possible, is to dismember an arm, and then the head. Most of the time, this will result in a kill. Do not do it the other way around - head then arm - because it will start flailing its arms around, and thus make it more difficult to shoot. This wiil work with any of the standard slashers, spitters, and pregnants.
