The thing about quantum leaps is that they mark an abrupt change from one state to a distinctly different one, with no in-between transitional states being possible. It makes sense to use “quantum leap” to refer to an abrupt, radical qualitative change, but less sense for a simple large increase. It’s probably better to leave “quantum leap” to the subatomic physicists unless you know what you’re talking about.
